Little Blitz

           February 1944, the Allies step up intense bombing on Berlin, Leipzig, Stuttgard and Schweinfurt.  During this time the Nazis attempt to re-stage another Blitz against London but it quickly run out of steam. These attacks were known as the Little or Baby Blitz and were most intense between 18—25 of February.

At the Imperial War Museum, the Blitz Experience is a carefully researched reconstruction of an air-raid shelter and a blitzed street in 1940 with sights and sounds evoke for visitors a sensation of being caught in the bombing of London during the Second World War.
