Exhibition Launch: Victims of Nazi Persecution in Lifestyle

exhibition_launch_victims_of_nazi_persecution_in


Limited spaces are available to attend the launch of our newest exhibition, which highlights the stories of those persecuted during the Nazi

The exhibition draws 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 launch reception will include an introduction by co-curator Dr. Gilly Carr of Cambridge University.
About the exhibition
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 celebrations of British victory over Germany.
From the experiences of a young Jewish woman living quietly on a farm in Guernsey and later deported to Auschwitz, to those of a Spanish forced labourer in Alderney, and the story of a man from Guernsey whose death in a German prison camp remained unknown to his family for over 70 years, this exhibition highlights the lives of the persecuted, and the post-war struggle to obtain recognition of their suffering.
