Hear some of their stories based on the research of Dr Gilly Carr of Cambridge University.

During the German Occupation of the Channel Islands 1940-1945, many thousands of people were persecuted, including slave labourers. political prisoners and Jews.

their story has been largely omitted from a British narrative of 'standing alone' against Mazism and celebrations of British victory over Germany.

From the experiences of a young Jewish woman living quietly on a farm in Guernsey and later deported to Auschqitz, to those of a Spanish forced labourer in Alderney, and the story of a man from Guernsey whose death in a German prison camp remained unknown to his family for over 70 years.

Based on the research for Dr Gilly Carr of Cambridge University, adapted from a display previously shown at the Wiener Library, London.
