Jersey War Tunnels Appeals For Wartime Stories

The Jersey War Tunnels is looking for any untold stories from the occupation.

They're being put together as part of a new exhibition to mark 75 years since Liberation Day in 2020.

Kathy Bechelet from the War Tunnels says no matter what the story might be, they want to hear it:

“We see Jersey War Tunnels as best placed to tell the true story of the German occupation in Jersey through the eyes of those who survived it. As custodian of these stories and accounts, we feel a great sense of responsibility to the local community to preserve as many tales of hardship and endurance as we can so that they can be kept alive and shared with future generations.

“The 75th anniversary of Liberation Day is a huge milestone and sadly most of those who lived through the occupation are no longer with us to celebrate. To commemorate those years of suffering we want to make sure we have done everything in our power to unearth any final stories that remain untold. They might be stories that have been passed on through families but have never been shared further. If you know anyone that has a memory to share, be it a story of courage, friendship or fortitude – we’d love to hear from you.”
