The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to fall into enemy hands, when they were occupied by Nazi Germany between 1940 and 1945.
2020 will be the 75th anniversary of Jersey’s Liberation following Occupation during WW2. Jersey will mark this milestone by identifying and telling compelling stories to ensure Jersey’s Liberation legacy lives on. As well as the stories of hardship and suffering, Jersey will curate stories to bring the brave spirit of Jersey and its people to life.
Events and experiences will be organised throughout the year to mark this poignant anniversary. The island will reveal modern execution methods, interactive installations and media to ensure the content resonates with all, but also creates a product story and engagement piece for all generations that can remain as an accessible legacy for the island.
The Bailiff’s Consultative Panel has formed a working group to lead and manage a series of events and projects for the entire year. Visit Jersey has contributed to the Liberation 75 proposal. Further details will be shared in due course. The itineraries below share suggested experiences to build into your programme throughout 2020.
