Unit 9 Second World War

Unit 9 Second World War consists of 5 plays (6 speakers each) and 5 quizzes on the second world war, the leaders, the battles. What it was like for a child living through those times.

Second World War Play 1-

Background Speakers: Winston Churchill, Neville Chamberlain, Hitler, British Child, German Child, Jewish Child

Churchill: And who was the mastermind behind it?

Chamberlain: Why Hitler, of course!

Hitler: But only because you sat back and let me. How feeble you were! Why did you think I started building up the German armed forces? I started my war preparations way back in 1933. You had plenty of time to stop me before we all went to war in 1939!

British child: OK, so he misread the signs!

German child: I’d say it was more a case of weakness! Not like our leader – he didn’t need anyone’s permission. He just got on with it.

Jewish child: He did that all right! He didn’t waste any time trying to wipe out a whole race!

The Course of War 1939-45 Speakers: NevilleChamberlain, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Stalin, Roosevelt, Emperor Hirohito of Japan

Roosevelt: Brave words. But you took a huge risk, you Brits, going it alone.

Stalin: Yes, it wasn’t long before France was defeated, joining the rest of Europe in Nazi occupation.

Churchill: Well, Germany did only have 2 true friends – Italy and Japan, making up the Axis Powers.

Second World War Play 3

Evacuation Speakers: Evacuee 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6

Evacuee 6: And then being lined up just like animals at an auction!

Evacuee 1: Course, the smart rich city kids were the first to be chosen.

Evacuee 2: And guess who was the last? Just because I wasn’t catwalk material!

Second World War Play 4

The Blitz – Air Raid Speakers: Air Raid Warden, Mother, Father, Grandad, Child 1 & 2

Air Raid Warden (sighing): I can tell tonight’s going to be a very long one! You come with me, Grandad, and I’ll take you to the best party in town!

Grandad: Now that’s more like it! Why didn’t you say? Will there be anybody else there?

Air Raid Warden: Just a few! Around 200,000 – is that enough for you?

Grandad: You mean a rave! Ooh yes! With lots of dancing?

Second World War Play 5

War-time Life Speakers: Mother, Father, Child, Sailor, Wren, Anne Frank

Father: And fat was something you were very unlikely to be! But hey! We were all in the same boat!

Sailor: Not with me, you weren’t. You thought you had it tough. Huh! You should have tried being at sea.

Wren: I did! In the Women’s Royal Naval Service. Forget the seagulls! Us wrens were far more highly trained!
