By and for the East Side History Club, a project of the Goodman Community Center

Need Your World War II Memories and Memorabilia

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on July 21, 2013

Fall brings more East Side History Club monthly programs beginning in September with  “World War II: East Side Home Front” on September 28, 2pm at the Goodman Community Center .(Note, this is the fourth Saturday in September.)

Do you have photographs of home and family life circa 1942-1945? We need pictures to go in the East Side News, due August 1. Please contact Sarah White @whitesarah@charter.net.

While women helped the war effort by working in local factories like Burgess Battery, their children became the first “latchkey” kids. Rumor has it a black market in food stamps operated out of the Kroger grocery store. Were you on the East Side during the war years of 1942-1945? What do YOU recall about life on the home front? Bring your memories and memorabilia to share at this meeting. Group discussion will be facilitated by Marvin Leitzke, Sarah White, and Ann Waidelich.
