Heartwarming War Photos You've Probably Never Seen Before
Austrian Boy Receives New Shoes During WWII
If you know anything about life at home during World War II then you know that supplies were scarce, and that wasn’t just in America. People all over the world had to forego many every day extravagances to ensure that the Allied Forces had what they needed to stop German and Japanese armies from crushing the west. That purposeful starvation and brush off of normal life went for everything from food, to shelter, and even clothing.
There’s no telling how long this boy waited for a new pair of shoes, but by the looks of his original pair he’s been waiting quite some time. Have you ever been so happy to find a pair of shoes in your size? We doubt it.
