About the Event
Join Barry Pell for a Presentation on the Channel Islands, that’s located in the English Channel between England and France. He visited each of these distinctive islands, documenting its history and culture. Learn how during World War II, the Islands were the only British land occupied by the German Army, and Islanders’ lives were severely restricted. German defense fortifications still litter the islands, as well as sculptures and monuments celebrating the end of Occupation. Other than a few towns, the Islands are filled with farms, old stone homes, ancient churches with atmospheric cemeteries, and dramatic weathered rocky coastlines.
