Join us for our 3rd talk in our 2018 Lecture Series, What am I to do to save my children? – Childhood, Youth, and Nuclear War, presented by Dr. Andrew Burtch.
About the Lecture
The atomic bomb cast a long shadow over children during the Cold War. At this event, Dr. Andrew Burtch of the Canadian War Museum will discuss what plans were developed to provide for the survival of children at home or at school, the involvement of children in civil defence, and the response of children and adults to nuclear war preparations from the 1950s to the 1980s.
