A previously unseen archive featuring the testimonies of people who were deported to German prison camps during World War II has been uncovered by researchers in Guernsey. The project, to document the history of protest and resistance in the Channel Islands, is being led by Dr. Gilly Carr, an archaeologist at Cambridge University. She described the collection as: “the single most important resistance archive ever to emerge from the Channel Islands.”
