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 exhibition tells the stories of the persecuted, drawing upon The Wiener Library’s rich archival collections, files recently released by The National Archives and items belonging to the victims of Nazi persecution themselves. The Wiener Library for the Study of the Holocaust & Genocide , 29 Russell Square, London WC1B 5DP. The exhibition will be open from 19th October 2017 – 9th February 2018.
