Part of the On British Soil events series

The presentation will retrace the evolution of the historiography – and interpretation - of the occupation of the Channel Islands; in the light and context of the international development of the study of the Nazi occupation of Europe in World War II. This evolution will be illustrated through the path- and agenda-setting contributions made over the past decades, including the presenter’s own work on the occupation since 1998.

Dr Paul Sanders is a historian and management scholar with expertise in World War II and leadership ethics. Paul is associate professor at NEOMA Business School (Reims, France). His major publications are History of the Black Market 1940-1946 (2001, in French), The British Channel Islands under German Occupation 1940-1945 (2005) and The Ultimate Sacrifice (2018, 3rd edition). The latter featured the first authoritative account of the story of Louisa Gould, the heroine of Another Mother’s Son. His current research is dedicated to investigating ethics under duress – with a particular emphasis on the controversial case of Israel Kasztner - and the problem of Dirty Hands.
