Visit saga.co.uk/jersey-walk Jersey and WWII The Channel Islands were the only part of the British Isles to be occupied by German forces in World War II. The five-year occupation came to an end on May 9, 1945, which became known as Liberation Day, an event still marked in Jersey with an annual Bank Holiday. The German Occupation began just a week after the British government had demilitarised the island, fearing for the safety of civilians should there be any conflict. It is believed that Germany targeted Jersey after reconnaissance planes mistook farm vehicles for troop carriers. During your holiday perhaps visit Jersey's historic war tunnels, originally intended as an underground barracks and ammunition store for the occupying forces. Jersey residents had to choose whether to remain on the island and those who opted to stay found ways to resist for five years.
