The term "Lost Generation" was initially used to describe the generation that came of age during World War I, popularized by Ernest Hemingway. It referenced the disillusionment experienced by many, especially intellectuals and creatives, who lived through the war and its aftermath. [MedPage Today]

Several decades later, the term was applied to another group. The "Woodstock Generation" typically refers to the Baby Boomers, specifically those who were young adults in the 1960s and 1970s during the time of the famous Woodstock Music Festival in 1969. They are sometimes referred to as the "Lost Generation" in a cultural or societal context, as they challenged many conventional norms and values during a time of significant societal upheaval.
