Organisation Todt & Prisoner of War Camps on Jersey

This is a work in progress!

We are tracking down each of the camps built during the Occupation. We want to place a memorial at each of these sites in time for the 75th Liberation to honour the workers and the many who suffered during the Second World War. 

If you have any information, photos or just want to help please get in touch.
