Does source D support the evidence of sources B and C about the damage done during air raids?

Extracts from this document...


Liz Reed 3. Does source D support the evidence of sources B and C about the damage done during air raids? Source D was taken in Coventry on the 15 November 1940 when Coventry was bombed almost to extinction. The photo shows a lot of damage and destruction, especially to houses and various buildings such as shops. There is debris and rubble, which doesn't create the most encouraging sight. Personnel belongings are strewn about the street in a careless way and the people all look shocked and bewildered. The photo indicates with out actually showing it, homelessness. This source was censored for 3 years and released when the memories to others then Coventry had worn off. Source B is very different to source D but it is still similar. ...read more.


There is no debris in C like there is in D but there are lots of personnel possessions, but these tend to be larger items such as furniture. Having the furniture there suggests that many of the people are homeless as otherwise the furniture would be in they're houses. This is relative to D as it also indicates homelessness. Source B was censored which we find quite understandable as it is very graphic and shows many bodies which the public would find gruesome and most probably terrifying. This source shows women and children dead and means that no one is safe no matter whom you are. The censorship was to keep the spirits and morale of the country up, as without this the war could be lost. ...read more.


This seemed to indicate that anywhere in the country could be reached so nowhere was safe. Showing this photo at the time would have just brought home the damage and probably caused some as well. Three months later the picture was released as it was expected that all except those in Coventry would have got used to the bombing by now and it could just show how people were carrying on even though the lives had been torn apart. It now showed well at least we're all right. To conclude I find that source D is relative to sources B and C when it comes to the damage in the air raids, but only in some ways. The sources B and C can appear to have not at all much to do with D, but we do find that there are slight ways that link them. ...read more.
