Coventry & the Blitz

The city was bombed many times during the Second World War by the Nazi German Air Force. The most devastating of these blitzes occurred on the evening of 14 November 1940.

In one night, more than 4,000 homes in Coventry were destroyed, along with around three quarters of the city's factories. There was barely an undamaged building left in the city centre. Two hospitals, two churches and a police station were also among the damaged buildings. Approximately 600 people were killed (the precise death toll has never been established) and more than 1,000 were injured.
