A Blitz survivor recounts her experience of the bombing

Posted on 11 October 2013

Brenda Whiteley was 10 and living in Hillfields when the family’s home was destroyed on the night in November 1940 when the Blitz hit Coventry. The family then moved into Lower Ford Street, where eventually their V E Day street party was held. In this video she remembers vividly that night and the days that followed.

This video was created by the newly launched Coventry TV and will form part of the live stream of our Coventry Blitz play One Night in November on Tuesday 15 October at 7.45pm.
