Visit the award winning Occupation Tapestry, also located at the Maritime Museum, made by the people of Jersey to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Island’s liberation. The twelve panels of this richly coloured tapestry tell the story of life in Jersey during the Second World War. This community work of art depicts Islanders' personal memories of the war and their experience of living under German occupation.


2015 Exhibition

70 Years of Liberation

A fresh look at the Occupation Tapestry with new interactive touchscreens and audio-visual presentations that draw on the latest academic research about this fascinating part of Jersey’s history. How did people make acts of resistance against the Germans? Who were the victims of Nazi persecution?

The Channel Islands hold the unique distinction of being the only part of Britain to be occupied by the Germans. But how did the experience of Islanders compare with that of other occupied countries in mainland Europe?
