Jersey’s Occupation: Heroes and Villains

The 5 years of Occupation had a profound effect on island life, and its stories remain relevant in the modern world even 80 years on.

Come and hear the many stories of local heroism and bravery, but also the darker side of the Jersey occupation, that remain relevant to the modern world. These are stories that continue to teach us the complexities of human nature, exemplified in a small island community.

The walk will start from outside the Parish Hall of St Helier (Town Hall) and follow a trail of the occupation, where we will follow in the footsteps of the women and men who experienced the lows and highs of hardship, bravery, resistance, camaraderie, collaboration, treachery and finally liberation.

We will focus on the stories of the heroes and heroines, and make sure their memories and examples live on.

The walk is classed as easy and will take just over an hour and will finish in Liberation Square.
