Liberate 2020

2020 will be the 75th anniversary of the Liberation.

Jersey aims to 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, we’ll research and curate stories to bring the brave spirit of Jersey and its people to life. These moving, unforgettable stories invite visitors and locals to see history in a different light, viewing it through the lens of adversity, perseverance and the strength of community. Jersey will explore 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.
