A Doctor's Occupation - Life in Nazi Occupied Jersey - UK
A Doctors Occupation is the story of Dr John Lewis running his general practice in Jersey during 1940-1945. The Channel Isles were the only part of Britain to be occupied by German forces during the Second World War.
A fascinating look at what life was like on the Channel Island of Jersey during the five years of German occupation in WWII. Written by a doctor, it not only tells what it was like performing his medical duties, with a shortage of doctors, drugs, and supplies, but also how he survived the ever increasing shortage of food, clothing, fuel, etc. A very clever and resourceful person, he made his own booze, grew tobako and rolled his own cigs, grew food, cut down trees (illegally) for logs to burn, and outwitted the Germans by keeping and slaughtering animals for meat.
