"resentment against the austerity of the 1950's"

I grew up in the 1950s in Holland, a devastated country after WWII, rebuilding housing, industry of Rotterdam and manufacturing from Philips. Our family had nothing to spend, lived in poverty but there was no room for resentment. As kids we had a lot of fun, but no toys to play with or for intellectual development. Remember the 1953 storm and floods quite well. In 1957 my parents emigrated to the U.S.

Family: What do you mean, the good old days?

Austerity addicts: why is 1940s nostalgia all the rage?
