The NH Home Front During World War II – A Documentary

What was life like for those who stayed behind in New Hampshire when legions of young men went off to fight World War II in Europe and the Pacific? That’s what Producer John Gfroerer examines in this documentary during a presentation Monday, Nov. 14 at 6 p.m. in Taylor Community’s Woodside Building. The event is free and open to the public.

Things were very different then. Calls to purchase War Bonds filled the radio airwaves. Rationing was in full force for food and gasoline. Posters reminded everyone that “loose lips sink ships.” The whole country was focused on one goal – winning the war.

Gfroerer, founder of Accompany Video Production of Concord, has produced more than 40 documentaries about life and history in New Hampshire and Maine. He will discuss his work after the showing.
