Hi, I live in Jersey which was occupied by the Germans in WW2 and on Wednesday there is a bank holiday because it is Liberation day! I am so happy because get a day off school!
Here is some information about it:
-In WW2 Jersey was occupied by the Germans.
-There were many new laws such as not being able to use radio's (although most people had a secret radio) and all motor cars were to be used by the Germans. Towards the end of the war you were not allowed on the beach
-There were strict curfews
-Electricity was limited
-No one was allowed off the island or they would be sent to concentration camps
-It was a very strict rule that all weapons were to be handed in.
-Food supplies were so low that animals often went missing from homes as the german troops had eaten them! :(
-Jersey was finally liberated on the 9th May 1945 - a few days after Hitler committed suiciude.
I hope you enjoyed learning about the Jersey Occupation!
