Remembering the Blitz
On 8 September 1940 there was a direct hit on our Whitechapel estate, sadly killing 78 people.
The East End was badly affected by the Blitz, the German Luftwaffe's bombing raids on London and other cities during the Second World War.
A commemorative memorial was placed on the estate in December 1995 and those who died are still remembered today by relatives and friends, some of whom have also left contributions on a Facebook page.
In total, two hundred Peabody residents and three members of staff were killed during the War.
