James. I am truly grateful for the statesman like actions of Winston Churchill in his determination to fight Hitler and generally in his favourable disposition towards the Jews and their yearning for statehood. Your comments regards Germans invasion of the Channel Islands are a little misleading. "Britain was indeed invaded to a lesser extent by the Germans on the off shore islands (guernsy etc) and they certainly did not round up the jews and build gas chambers." In 1942-43, 2,000 British people, including whole families with children, were forcibly deported to camps in southern Germany. This was carried out partly in retaliation for the internment of Germans living in Iran, and also as a revenge for a British small scale raid on Sark. During the occupation, some Islanders were sent to concentration camps including Buchenwald, Bergen-Belsen, Ravensbrueck, Auschwitz and Neunegamme. Some were sent to Sylt in Alderney, the only concentration camp (named 'Norderney') established by the Nazis on British soil. French Jews were also imprisoned in the camp. At least 31 Islanders from Jersey were murdered in the camps or died from ill-treatment. The other 2000 mostly died in the European camps.
