Hammond Memorial

Memorial in Alderney

With five main plaques in Russian, Hebrew, Polish, French and Spanish, this sombre memorial commemorates 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.
