Children's Art from other Wars

The Spanish Civil War was the first conflict that inspired the creation of drawings by children who experienced the trauma of modern warfare. Tragically it was not the last. Children continue to be victims of war and violence. The following links will take you to collections of drawings done by young artists who depict their response to subsequent wars, from World War II to the present.
