A Stub of Pencil for a Piece of Bread: Occupation hero Frank Falla

    22/04/2017: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    (Past Event)
  • Venue: The Old Goverment House Hotel and Spa
  • Price: £25.00 includes Deluxe Afternoon tea and a £5 donation to the Red Cross

Join Dr Gilly Carr, Cambridge University academic and Channel Islands Occupation expert, for afternoon tea in the sumptuous surroundings of the 5-star Old Government House Hotel (which itself played a part in the Occupation as a base for German officers during the war) and hear about Guernsey Occupation hero, Frank Falla.

“During the Occupation, those who stood up to the Germans made the most of the skills they already had. Frank Falla was a journalist and helped to run an underground newsletter before he was caught.  But what makes him my hero of the Occupation is the testimony he bore for islanders who died around him in prison, and the tirelessness with which he fought to get compensation from the German government after the war. I look forward to sharing his story”.
