The most memorable thing my grandmother told me about WWII was about the horrible blackouts. They had to go to the subway stations so they wouldnĘt be bombed. She told me about one man who lived on her street that was lighting a cigarette and it was the only light you could see for blocks. The man got caught by the cops and had to pay a big fine because he didnĘt want any light to be seen. Another thing that I found out was during school they had air raid drills to which was more frightening. They had to hide under the desk so they wouldnĘt get as hurt if they got bombed.
