Orphans of Normandy By: Caroline Key

Clothes of an orphan
  • Wore dresses
  • No shoes
  • Not expensive clothes
  • Girls with dolls
  • Orphans draw
  • Ate hardly none
  • Ate same thing
  • Starved to death
  • Thrown on streets
  • Treated like garbage

The orphans are an important part of WWII beacause they were greatly affected by the war. We should always not only think about the citizens, but also the orphans during WWII. Some people don't think that the orphans are important, but they matter just as much as everyone else. Millions of orphans were affected because of the war. Learning about this was important because it showed how bad life was for the orphans.
