On British Soil: Victims of Nazi Persecution in the Channel Islands
Friday 29 March to Sunday 12 May
This exhibition highlights the lives of the persecuted and the post-war struggle to obtain recognition of their suffering.
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 Nazism 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 Auschwitz, 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 of Dr Gilly Carr of the University of Cambridge, adapted from a display previously shown at the Wiener Library, London.
