Attic Artifacts: World War II Kids

Following World War II, many Americans kept souvenirs of lost loved ones or their time in the war. Many of these articles were stored in boxes or trunks and then tucked away in attics, basements, and garages for decades. In this program, students learn what qualifies as a primary source, and how important they are as sources of information. Students handle and evaluate images, documents and a variety of artifacts from World War II.
