Return to Biberach
Mrs Nellie Le Feuvre, Sark’s only remaining World War Two deportee, was a guest of honour this week at the opening of an exhibition in the German town of Biberach to tell the history of the internment camp in the town. Nellie was just 15 on the 12th February 1943 when she, her mother Adelina and seven-year-old brother Vivian were taken from Sark. Initially they were placed in a camp in France where they spent three months before being moved to Biberach, were they remained for 16 months. In late October 1944 Nellie and her family were moved to Liebenau where they spent the rest of the War. During her visit, the fourth she has made to Biberach, Nellie read extracts from her book, ‘A Sark Teenager’s Deportation’ at the opening of the exhibition. She was accompanied by her cousin, Dudley Bradley, who was born in Biberach while his mother was also held as a deportee. Nellie was one of sixty-two people who were deported from Sark during the Occupation.
