This major exhibition commemorated a powerful and important subject by recounting the experiences of those who lived and worked through the Second World War in Liverpool, in particular the Blitz bombing of May 1941. The profound effects that the war had on the community of Liverpool were examined through the personal accounts of people who were there - a disappearing generation.

To accompany the main exhibition at the Maritime Museum, the nearby Museum of Liverpool Life featured a wartime garden and the Piermasters House was converted into a 1940s house. There was also a display of wartime vehicles in the Great Western Railway building.
