In search of liberation memories
Liberation Square
Liberation Square was opened by Prince Charles on the 9 May 1995
Parish authorities are hoping to gather special memories of Jersey people who remember the island's occupation during World War II.

It is part of the run up to the commemorations planned to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the island on 9 May.

Several parishes are organising their own ways to remember what happened.

People living in Trinity will be able to see an exhibition of occupation memorabilia at their parish hall.

A commemoration is held every year, with the Bailiff leading a procession from Howard Davis Park to Liberation Square.

Liberation day is an important bank holiday for Jersey people, many of whom experienced the occupation at first-hand.

Jersey was occupied by German forces for almost five years during WWII.
