Horrors of the Victorian Workhouse

I think it’s fair to say that most of our kids feel they are somehow hard done by and that life is sometimes cruel and unforgiving.

The video below is something that all children in today’s modern times should watch for it reveals a bygone era of real poverty, real hardship and catalogues the abuse children who were subjected to in the Victorian workhouses of Britain.

After viewing the video you will not doubt realise just how lucky you were not to be born in an era where children, the ill and the infirm were merely discarded by society.
