Racial Persecution and Resistance in the Channel Islands

Part of The Wiener Library's On British Soil event programming

In the occupied Channel Islands, two groups of people were persecuted on racial grounds: the islands’ small Jewish community and the thousands of Soviet slave labourers who were brought to the islands by the Germans to construct defensive fortifications. After outlining the nature of this persecution, Dr. Louise Willmot examines the activities and motives of those local people who sought to protect the victims, risking their own lives to do so. She also suggests reasons why the island authorities were slow to acknowledge the courage of rescuers after the Liberation.
