Voices of the Second World War

Sheila Renshaw talks of her research behind her book at Gosport Discovery Centre

DUE TO ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS THIS EVENT WILL NOW BE HELD ON THURSDAY 15 MARCH A Child's Perspective is a collection of first-hand accounts from people who experienced WW2 from all over Europe. The accounts have been relayed according to their perspective at the time and the contributors were happy to share their experiences and memories, keen in the knowledge that they were being documented as personal chroniclers of one of the twentieth century's most catastrophic events. Author Sheila Renshaw shares stories of her research and talks of how she was inspired to write this book, having talked to a neighbour who lived in the U.S.S.R. during the WW2 and who had never told her story to anyone before as she didn't feel anyone would be interested. Tickets available in person from Gosport Discovery Centre, through the booking line on 02392 523463 or via the online shop. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing on the night.
