Why were people evacuated in World War II?

Answer

People were evacuated from the large cities during World War II to prevent massive deaths and casualties from the enemy raids. The government decided to introduce evacuation at the start of the war after the bombing of Guernica in 1937. On August 31st, 1939, the government issued the order “Evacuate Forthwith” and ‘Operation Pied Piper’ was started the very next day.
