World War II was the most disastrous and catastrophic war in the history of mankind. Millions of casualties, even more injured, and who knows how many left with traumatic memories of the war.

Dr. Suzannah Lipscomb, a British historian and television presenter talks about the hidden dangers of the post-war home.
