"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 from celebrations of British victory over Germany. This catalogue tells the stories of the persecuted, drawing upon files recently released by The National Archives. From the experiences of a young Jewish woman hiding in Jersey, to the story of a man from Guernsey whose death in a German prison camp remained unknown to his family for over 70 years, this catalogue highlights the lives of the persecuted, and the post-war struggle to obtain recognition of their suffering" -- cover.
