We can only imagine how happy Islanders felt on 9 May 1945 when Jersey was liberated from Occupation at the end of World War Two.


To celebrate this momentous time in Jersey’s history, we’ve got a host of events and projects lined up to help you mark the 75th anniversary this year and to share Jersey’s Liberation story across the world.
