Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEST WEBSITES -

bath­blitz.org In this month’s ‘More great web­sites’ sec­tion, we’ve listed sev­eral sites that are ded­i­cated to in­di­vid­ual raids, re­gions and cities, from Nor­wich and York, to Coven­try and Liverpool. This dated-look­ing but in­for­ma­tive web­site cov­ers the lesser-known Bath Blitz – a se­ries of raids on the city in April 1942, when more than 19,000 build­ings were de­stroyed or dam­aged and over 400 peo­ple were killed. The site was specif­i­cally launched to lobby for a per­ma­nent me­mo­rial to the city’s wartime vic­tims, an aim achieved in 2003, but it also has rem­i­nis­cences, a de­tailed his­tory of the at­tacks, as well as a list of the ca­su­al­ties.
