In this lecture, Dr Gilly Carr will explore the campaign by former political prisoner Frank Falla to obtain compensation for Nazi persecutioIn 1964, the West German government awarded one million pounds as compensation for British victims of Nazi persecution. Falla, a Guernsey resident sent to Frankfurt and Naumburg prisons for working on underground newsletter 'GUNS', was the Channel Islands' 'unofficial official' in helping his fellow former prisoners in their applications. But the Foreign Office, who administered the claims, were not always as sympathetic as Falla might have hoped.
Dr Gilly Carr, the co-curator of The Wiener Library’s On British Soil exhibition, has conducted extensive research in The National Archives Nazi compensation claims files, which were only released in 2016. Dr Carr is a University Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. She has worked in the field of Conflict Archaeology, Heritage Studies and POW Archaeology since 2006. Amongst her more than 60 publications are Legacies of Occupation: Archaeology, Heritage and Memory in the Channel Islands (2014) and, with Paul Sanders and Louise Willmot, Protest, Defiance and Resistance in the Channel Islands, 1940-1945 (2014).
