Product Overview

It probably doesn''t surprise anyone to learn that for each one of us, a childhood does matter. It''s a lesson the planners of Britain''s World War II evacuations should have kept in mind. Doreen Drewry Lehr searches for her childhood, lost when she was sent away from her mother before she was even five. She finds precious clues in conversations with those who shared her wartime experiences on the beautiful, isolated and harsh Yorkshire Moors. The second part of the book surveys Britain''s social policies that separated children from home and parents
from the 17th century until 1967, when the last children left Britain - the majority falsely labeled as "orphans."
