A book has been published telling the story of life during the occupation through children's eyes.
Jacqueline King decided to write A Cake For The Gestapo after hearing stories from people who grew up during the occupation.
The fictional children's book, which starts in June 1940, tells the story of a group of friends who form a resistance group against Nazi soldiers.
I wrote it really because children in England don't know about the occupation but I met a wonderful man and he said he had such fun when the Germans were here playing tricks so I thought yes, I'll write about a gang playing tricks and then they play a trick too many.
The German occupation of the Channel Islands lasted for most of the Second World War from 30 June 1940 until 9 May 1945.
During that time several items were confiscated and new rules were introduced for islanders including:
The confiscation of boats
The confiscation of radios
The confiscation of motor vehicles and fuel
The confiscation of cameras
Restrictions on drinking alcohol
Restrictions on patriotic signs and songs
Driving on the right hand side of the road
Some of those who broke the rules were sent to Nazi prisons and concentration camps.
The message is don't give up, be brave, be kind, look after each other and laugh at destiny. Don't let the bad side influence you, don't be bullied.
It starts off quite funny because it's about a gang of children who really don't want the Germans to land and they plan that they're going to form a sort of resistance club so they make up a band and play loud music when the Germans are nearby and the Germans just take photos and think it's wonderful so they get really cross and they try more and more things, catapulting them and they do a few really stupid things which wouldn't be likely at all, so I had fun writing it.
