    Interesting article on the BBC site stating the case for the camp locations on Alderney being made a tourist spot:

    'The western-most concentration camp in the Third Reich, Lager Sylt, was located on British soil - only about 70 miles south of Bournemouth on the island of Alderney. Should this camp and other relics of the Channel Islands' occupation by Nazi Germany be developed into tourist attractions?
    Arrive in Alderney at its small and ageing airport and you will see an island map, pointing out Victorian forts, a Roman nunnery and World War Two coastal defences.
    There is, however, no mention of the four wartime camps that housed thousands of slave labourers, many of whom died as part of Nazi Germany's attempts to turn Alderney into a fortress island.

    It is these locations that Marcus Roberts, director of the National Anglo-Jewish Heritage Trail, believes should be developed as "sites of memory", in part to boost the island's flagging tourism industry.
    "Alderney is perhaps the best place to go to understand the realities of the Nazi slave labour system," he said.
    "People could go and understand what the consequences of tyranny are and the mistreatment of other people.
    "I think there's a role for respectable tourism, which would be part of the overall tourism strategy for the island."'

    No fewer than four of the KL-Neuengamme satellite camps and work details were located on the Channel Islands. The threads linked below also address the sites:

    Thanks for posting this up Hucks, as with all KZ sites, as long as the aim is to educate the next generation and due respect is given, opening up these areas can only be a good thing in my opinion. Leon.
