We look back at our families in 1939, at home and in the Armed forces – what were their lives like and what lay in store for them. We have a collection of articles looking at the social history, the fashion history, reader memories and more

The 80th anniversary of the 1939 Register

We look at the last journeys made by Jewish children, fleeing Nazi Germany, in the final weeks before the door closed, leaving millions to their fates
