REMEMBERING THE BLITZ

The Blitz took place between 7 September 1940 and 11 May 1941. This online exhibition looks at what it was like to live through the Blitz in London and at how we remember it now.

Most Londoners and many others 'remember' the Blitz - whether through experience or through family stories, school lessons, photographs, movies, TV, books, art, memorials and museums. Between 7 September 2000 and 11 May 2001 - exactly 60 years after the event - visitors to this online exhibition were invited to contribute their own memories. Those memories now form part of the exhibition itself.
