Jersey War Tours

Jersey's Forced Workers, Slave Labour & Prisoner of War

This is a work in progress!

We are tracking down each of the camps built during the Occupation. We want to place a memorial at each of these sites to honour the many who suffered during the Second World War. We are funding this project, and many like it, from our membership scheme and our tours.

If you have any information, photos or just want to help please get in touch.
