Alderney Service of Commemoration

With five main plaques in Russian, Hebrew, Polish, French and Spanish, this memorial was built by local residents on their return to the island to commemorate the slaves and forced labourers, brought to Alderney by the Nazis during WWII, who subsequently died on the island from maltreatment.

'Hunger and unbearable hardships took your lives', reads a smaller plaque in Russian, erected in 1990 by Russian slaves who'd survived.

His Excellency attended the ecumenical service held to commemorate and remember those slave workers who came to Alderney.
