Overview

This independent study has already attracted controversy. It vividly portrays the Islanders' Occupation experiences and explores the most hotly disputed issues, including collaboration, resistance and starvation; the fate of missing forced workers; the question of whether Island Officials knowingly sent three Jewish women to their deaths in Auschwitz; whether the Islands' experiences were unique, or whether they would have provided the blueprint for Hitler's planned occupation of Britain, and many more.
