People share their opinions on whether or not peace is possible in our current world and how we would go about achieving it.

Doreen’s War: Keep Smiling Through

Doreen was only 8 years old when World War 2 began. While many children were evacuated from London's east end, Doreen stayed with her family in Plaistow and was homeschooled - even during the deadly Blitz between 1940 and 1941. Her best friend Marjorie had been evacuated to a different part of the country, but their relationship stayed strong and they're still friends 75 years later.

Just before VE Day in 2020, this interview with Doreen recounting her memories of WW2 was recorded during lockdown conditions due to the coronavirus. Doreen compares how the nation felt then to how it feels during the pandemic. 

This film includes an accompanying worksheet that can be used by pupils.
