What people went through in WW2.

Here’s an interesting Twitter idea that gives people the chance to follow the lives of four Londoners in 1943 for three weeks up to Remembrance Day.

Each character tweets throughout the day, giving a sense of the kinds of experience that people went through on the Home Front.

From where I’m sitting (a nice warm desk in a safe office in not-in-the-least-at-war London) WW2 seems an abstract and remote notion, so I appreciate the chance to think about what millions of people went through so that I don’t have to worry about Leeds being turned into a giant concentration camp.
