Liberation Day is a bit like our national day. It is to celebrate the Liberation of the Bailiwick of Guernsey from occupying forces on the 9th May 1945. Although there is a serious element in the day remembering those who fought for us & enabled liberation, it is also party time.
WW2 was a defining part of Guernsey's recent history. It brought a lot of change to the fabric of the island due to some people, especially children, being evacuated to the UK, after five years away they brought a lot of new ideas back & a lot of our older locals refer to things as before or after the war.
Even if you are not visiting Guernsey on Liberation Day there are many things to visit here that are associated with the occupation of Guernsey.
