Wine & Lecture: San Diego Children and Teens During World War Two

Thursday, September 21, 2023

The Coronado Historical Association invites you to the next lecture in the Wine and Lecture series as historian Linda Canada gives a unique view of San Diego Children and Teens During World War Two. The young people of San Diego had an experience of World War II that was much different from their parents. Not only did many fathers leave to fight overseas, but a lot of mothers took war jobs and were often gone from home for long hours. Food, clothing, and shoes were suddenly rationed, air raid sirens abruptly sounded day or night, and even activities at school were modified to provide training to help in the war effort! Through letters, interviews, and official records you’ll learn about the actual experiences of San Diego’s children and their life on the home front during World War II.
