Stories by and about students' wartime efforts
Homefront: Milwaukee Children during the Second World War
From selling war bonds to collecting tinfoil to serving on the battlefield, Milwaukee teenagers proudly took part in the war effort both at home and abroad during World War II. This site, part of the Children in Urban America Project, focuses on the contributions made to the war effort by Milwaukee students. It also includes an excerpt from a 1946 pamphlet intended to help children respond to death and to the psychological effects of war on friends and family.
