The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by the German forces. The occupation began on 30 June 1940 and the islands were finally liberated on 9 May 1945. This day became known as ‘Liberation Day’ and it is still celebrated every year, in fact 9 May 2020 is the 75th anniversary.
There are a number of sites throughout the island which can be visited, and in 1971 the Channel Islands Occupation Society was set up to maintain and preserve the many fortifications that were originally built.
