Looking for WWII London blitz evacuees

Were you evacuated from London during the World War Two blitz? Or do you know anyone who was? Community film makers digital-works have an exciting new project Operation Pied Piper: An oral history of London's evacuees and they'd love to hear from you.

To mark the 80th anniversary of Operation Pied Piper, education charity digital-works is running a project with St Thomas' Primary school in North Kensington. The children will explore and record the memories of people who were evacuated from London during World War Two. The Imperial War Museum and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's Local Studies department are also involved in the project.

Can you help? We are looking for people who can spare a little time to come and speak to groups of 10 and 11 year olds about their experiences. The children will be recording these meetings in order to make an oral history documentary film about the experience of evacuees during the Second World War.
