Special Offer: Victims of Nazi Persecution by Gilly Carr

We are pleased to announce a special offer on Gilly Carr’s latest book Victims of Nazi Persecution in the Channel Islands: A Legitimate Heritage?

Special offer: 72% discount

The recommended retail price is £90 for this hardback book from Bloomsbury Academic – but we have negotiated a special discounted price of £25 which is only available to residents of the Channel Islands.

Gilly’s latest book explores the long-term effects of Nazi persecution on the Channel Islands’ political prisoners during the German Occupation of World War II. It also examines the long-term neglect of their heritage and memory by both national and local governments since 1945.

The three-part book starts with the wartime experience of islanders in Nazi prisons and camps based on their own testimonies and examines the reception they faced on their return. The second part explores the compensation claims period of the 1960s, the role of Frank Falla, and the way political prisoners were actively excluded from the narrative of the occupation by the local authorities. The third part takes us from the 1960s to the present, looking at the fight for recognition by local ‘guardians of memory’ and the activism of ‘game changers’. The book finishes by examining the status quo today.
