Top Fort Cloque on the very westernmost tip of Alderney was an existing fort which was used by the Germans. They used slave labour to build a causeway to the island in late 1942 and the dates are inscribed in the concrete.One, at the fort end of the causeway bears the monogram of the 3rd Company of Engineer Construction Battalion 158 and the date ' LXII.42'.I think that they were specialist, important men, because I had better food there than I ever had in my life.Real coffee: at this moment I was making chips every day and cakes. Then suddenly in December 1943, they moved everything , the Germans and me, over to Cherbourg at 22 rue de la Boucaille ...afterwards I discovered they were specialists in 'buzz bombs' - I was cooking here in Alderney and then in Cherbourg for men who were making the bases for 'buzz-bombs'!In terms of location, the States Diary was present after the war at precise geo-location 49Â°42'55.84"N 2Â°12'9.15"W, thus this camp was only a short distance away, it is stated to have been just to the east in an area that is now a timber or storage yard and the concrete surface may well be a survival of the camp site.
The eye-witness account of the Belgian volunteer labourer, Norbert Beernaert, reveals a presence of a small camp maintained for the benefit of high-value German civilian technical military specialists, which was behind the diary in Le Val.
He states, ' One day we had a visit by a German Commission who inspected the camp and asked questions about our work.
While it is commonly said that the majority of German soldiers on the island were not aware of the true treatment and fate of the slave workers, one of the NCO's of this battalion is on record as having witnessed the inhuman beating of exhausted, starving prisoners and their desperate attempts to forage food by digging entrails up from behind the slaughter house.
There are many sites on Alderney from which, it is stated by former slave-labourers, that prisoners would be thrown off the cliffs into the sea, not only dead, but sometimes alive too. Prisoner Prokop describes what he experienced at Fort Cloque: ' There was a little fortress on a rock and there the SS prison guards would throw prisoners over the cliff, which I suppose was about 150 to 250 feet high.' Today the fort is promoted as holiday location and for its accommodation, such that a journalist who stayed there opined in an article headed, Alderney: ' The fun of the fort', that it was a perfect location to get, 'that Alderney Feeling'. Fort Clonque is located at geo-location 49Â°42'49.02"N 2Â°13'57.66"W.
Top Jewish East End - in and around Brick Lane (and beyond)The key area for the Jewish immigrant community of the late 19th and early 20th century was concentrated in and around Brick Lane, but it extended much further east to Mile End and Stepney, south to Commercial Road and Cable Street and north to Bethnal Green and Shoreditch as well as back towards the City.In Spitalfields you will find the 'classic' Jewish East End with memories evoking the street market of Petticoat Lane, small synagogues such as Sandys Row Synagogue (open for afternoon services and on request, see Princelet Street, tailoring and fur workshops, the former Russian Vapour Baths, the former Jewish Soup Kitchen, housing initiatives of Lord Rothschild and the site of the Jews' Free School, once the largest school in Europe and with many famous alumni.
