Rare 1942 board game titled 'Air Raid Siren!,' which shows response of German city dwellers to air raid. Citizenry awakens to siren warning of nighttime air raid. Game depicts what emergency provisions and tools must be on hand, how to put out fires, how to find an air raid shelter, how to conduct oneself inside a shelter and eventual return after air raid ends. Citizens are shown to be stoic, brave, helpful and orderly. Nazi soldiers are shown shooting down Allied aircraft. In 1942, the German public was getting used to Allied air raids and was beginning to get wary of stalled war effort of Nazi regime. Game was meant to boost morale as well as provide pragmatic instruction. Excellent condition, board only, with minor wear mostly near fold and at corners. Game measures 17"x14".
