A final scene-setter for Simon’s Blitz 80th Anniversary Virtual Tour. This is two diary entries made by the great novelist Virginia Woolf in September and October 1941. Made just hours after air raids that hit London very hard and in particular Virginia Woolf’s Bloomsbury. Indeed, the second attack reduced her and her husband Leonard Woolf’s house in Tavistock Square to rubble. Virtually nothing was salvageable. The diary entries are vivid, powerful, felt, graphic. They get us very close to those terrible times.
