April 23, 2015 - Victory Begins at Home: the World War II Home Front

7:30 pm (Berwick Academy)

What was life like on the American home front during World War II?  Peggy Konitzky, Historic New England Site Manager, will examine how American communities like the Berwicks dealt with the exodus of local men and women to the armed services and the requirements of the war effort, including the effect of blackouts, rationing and shortages on households and local businesses.  She will discuss the changing roles of women during the war, both as production soldiers in new war jobs and as “kitchen commandos” in the home. The illustrated talk includes information from local newspapers in South Berwick and Kennebunk as well as photos and archival materials from the Old Berwick Historical Society.
