Guernsey is in the news again. Scores of secret files, hidden away since the 1960's show for the first time the appalling treatment of deported islanders during the Occupation - particularly if they were suspected of any form of resistance. The documents tell of people who were forced to listen to fellow prisoners being decapitated by guillotine in German prison camps. This provies, without doubt, that conditions were far worse than first imagined. I wonder if there is anyone out there who still remembers?
