* It was done on the other side too, with the KLV (Kinderlandverschickung, or "Relocation of Children to the Countryside") during the worst of the Allied bombing of German cities. Close to half a million German children, mostly from Hamburg and Berlin but also from Cologne, Dresden and Dusseldorf, were relocated by 1941, with a estimated total of nearly 3 million by the end of the war. Children were moved either to host families or government-sponsored KLV camps.

* The 2015 horror film ''Film/WomanInBlackAngelOfDeath'' features a group of children evacuated to an {{Old Dark House}} where they encounter the titular Woman in Black, a vengeful spirit from the late 1800s who [[DisproportionateRetribution kills]] children whenever she is seen. In retrospect, they really should have taken their chances with the Luftwaffe.

* In ''Manga/BarefootGen'', Japanese children are sent off to the countrryside so they won't be threatened by bombing. Akira, the only one of the Nakaoka children selected for evacuation, decides to sneak back to Hiroshima, and his family has trouble persuading him to return to where the food is no better and other irritations are worse. For all their hardships, at least the children sent away survive the war; many of their relatives don't.

* Also by Michelle Magorian is ''Back Home,'' about an evacuee girl's experiences when she returns to her family. (This one was made into a movie too.) As she was evacuated to America, to a very 'modern' family she experiences a ''lot'' of fish out of water on her return, having to adjust to a very different, and much poorer culture.

During the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Second World War]], the British government made a sustained effort to remove civilians--especially [[ChildrenAreInnocent children]]--from areas of the country that were likely to be bombed; although the common wisdom is that the government "overestimated" the potential number of casualties, later research suggested that the mass evacuations saved enough lives to make the original estimates seem inaccurate. The result was that large numbers of children (over a million at some points during the war -- at least one writer claims that over 3.5 million people were evacuated in total) were sent from urban settings into the country or to Canada, to live with distant relatives or complete strangers.

However there remains debate over whether the dislocation and emotional suffering was really necessary. The result was that large numbers of children (over a million at some points during the war -- at least one writer claims that over 3.5 million people were evacuated in total) were sent from urban settings into the country or to Canada, to live with distant relatives or complete strangers.
