This exciting new book commemorates and celebrates the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Channel Islands, after the occupation of the invading German forces during WW2. Stories of the occupation continue to inspire generations of artists, poets, historians and writers.
In Living Memory is a collection of contemporary visual arts, original essays and poetry, plus first-hand memories of those who survive the war years and wish to share their memories – some for the very first time.
