Based on the book ‘Living with the Enemy’ by Roy McLoughlin, this Documentary by the same name is a tribute to the people of Jersey. Inspired by Islanders who experienced the events, Living with the Enemy tells the real story of the Nazi occupation of Jersey from its beginning in 1940 to its end in 1945.
Through first-hand personal interviews and rare film footage shot at the time, the Documentary explores the wide-ranging effects that military occupation had upon the lives of those people forced to endure it. From both a social and historical perspective, Living With The Enemy is an important and informative addition to this unique chapter in the history of the Island and the Second World War in general.
The documentary is a Green Eye Production in association with the Marie-Anthoine Film Fund and Jersey Tourism Development Fund. Profits from the sales of the DVD will go to ‘The Marie-Anthoine Film Fund’, to support Jersey residents in the production of moving picture accounts of the culture, history, flora and fauna, and geological makeup of the Island.
