France has just fallen to the Nazis. Britain is under siege. As BBC bulletins grow more and more bleak, residents of Jersey abandon their homes in their thousands. When the Germans take over, Marlene Zimmer, a shy clerk at the Aliens Office, must register her friends and neighbours as Jews while concealing her own heritage, until eventually she is forced to flee. Layers of extraordinary history unfold as we chart Marlene's transformation from unassuming office worker to active Resistance member under the protection of Surrealist artists Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, who manage to find poetry in the midst of hardship and unimaginable danger. Drawn from authentic World War II documents, broadcasts and private letters, War on the Margins tells the unforgettable story of the deepening horror of the Nazi regime in Jersey and the extraordinary bravery of those who sought to subvert it.

About the Author:

Libby Cone earned an MA in Jewish Studies in 2006, and "War on the Margins" grew from her thesis.

Review:

'Seventy years after we declared war on Germany, it is worth remembering that, while mainland Britain struggled to keep at bay the threat of Nazi invasion, the people of the Channel Islands knew just what such an invasion could mean... What makes this story so compelling is the way in which original documents and papers are interspersed, highlighting the gradual erosion and ultimate destruction of the rights of the Jewish islanders. A very timely book indeed' - Daily Mail. 'A gem of Jewish resistance, chilling, charming and interspersed with authentic papers and broadcasts of the time' - Jewish Chronicle.
