"What does Liberation mean to you today?"

I've just completed a stop motion animation project involving the Guernsey public.  On May 9th, we were celebrating 68 years since the end of the German occupation of Guernsey.  We wanted to know what that means to people in 2013.
The responses were thought provoking — both amusing and sobering.  I can't watch it without smiling from ear-to-ear — partly because of the responses, but mostly from the memory of meeting so many wonderful people that day.
To the old and young, Guerns, Brits, French, German, Polish, Dutch and American/German, echoing what is said at the end of the video; "Thank you, everyone!"
