About Frank Falla

The Frank Falla archive is named after Guernseyman Frank Falla, former prisoner and survivor of Frankfurt (Main) and Naumburg (Saale) prisons.

Frank, a journalist, was deported for his role in the underground newsletter GUNS (Guernsey Underground News Service). In the mid-1960s, and in the absence of any official help or interest, Frank took it upon himself to help his fellow former political prisoners in the Channel Islands get compensation for their suffering in Nazi prisons and camps. Frank was passionate about getting recognition for all Channel Islanders who had been deported to Nazi prisons and camps. This website is dedicated to continuing his work. In 2010, Frank’s daughter gave Dr Gilly Carr her father’s extensive archives. This sparked the beginning of what was to become this website.
