This only the start.
Today vast amount of Channel Islands Occupation and remembrance of what happened has been put to one side.
The Channel Islands were the only piece of British Isles territory Germany ever managed to occupy during the Second World War. Over 25,000 people had been evacuated to Britain, including some children, but 41,101 remained on Jersey, 24,429 on Guernsey, and 470 on Sark.
Campaign has established that majority "Don't have Remembrance Today."
We need donations to make sure remembrance does happen. For so many people that fell under occupation WW2 and all slave labour brought to the Channel Islands and those who decided to evacuate.
We need funds for various "Remembrance" promotion for our core Campaign aim. Our core aim is a Universal Memorial for all victims. With your help we can make this happen.
Occupation of the Channel during WW2 was a horrific moment for so many people. not forgetting the vast amount of slave labour brought to islands, and placed in terrible camps including "concentration camps" forced to build fortifications for the Germans.
Channel Islands WW2 Remembrance Campaign started in 2018 by Jersey Occupation family. Campaign is notable as it has 11 MP support EDM motion at Westminster Parliament in support of this Campaign .
We need funds to help take the campaign forward so we can further campaign to get a memorial finally built. Deliver information about our plans to politicians and the wider public to get this memorial built and far more. New phase of this campaign. We needs funds for Occupation research.
Lot of people deserve remembrance and help to make it happen.
Sincere thanks. See below.
Joe Miere, one of Jersey's foremost World War II historians, has died after a long battle with cancer. He was imprisoned three times by the Germans from 1940 to 1945. He was one of greatest Resistance hero's .
The hardships he suffered during the Occupation made him determined to keep alive the experiences of Channel Islanders under German rule. He was also the curator of the German Underground Hospital in St Lawrence, and collected many artefacts and documents from the time.
Today little Remembrance for those who suffered under Occupation and what they did after the Occupation - all hero's without real Remembrance?
