Rare Nazi wall slogans to be lost forever

WITHIN weeks, an Occupation relic will be gone forever.
During the Second World War, two propaganda slogans and the Nazi eagle and swastika were painted on a wall at the former Boy’s Grammar School in Brock Road.
Now the Guernsey Housing Association is redeveloping the site and the wall will soon be torn down.
Preservation group Festung Guernsey spent 10 weeks uncovering the historic slogans.
Project coordinator Paul Bourgaize said it was sad to lose them, but the wall had been photographed and recorded. ‘It is a shame, but this is progress,’ he said.
