Dr Gilly Carr:Nightmares, nerves, neuroses & Nazis

Part of the Guernsey Literary Festival! 

In 1945, Islanders who had been deported to Nazi prisons and camps for acts of resistance slowly trickled home. But this was not the end of their nightmare.

Newly released archival files show that many of them suffered for years from symptoms of undiagnosed PTSD. In a period when mental health conditions were stigmatised, what was to be the impact of this on the way we remember resisters today?
