Victor Hugo in Jersey
The 19th Century French writer and the author of Les Miserables, Victor Hugo, lived for some time in Jersey. A staunch Republican, Hugo was forced to take refuge in Belgium before seeking asylum in Jersey in order to escape Louis Napoleon.
His arrival in St Helier on 5th August 1852 caused a great stir, as the many political refugees who were in the island at that time all proceeded to the quay to greet him. Never at a loss for words, Hugo assured them that he had come to share the same sky, the same exile and that they were all to love one another. He then went in triumph to the Pomme d’Or Hotel where he stayed until he was lucky enough to find a house by the sea at Greve d’Azette in the parish of St Clement. The Rocher des Proscrits, where he often stood and looked back to France, is on the Le Dicq slipway nearby and is commemorated by a plaque on the wall of the slipway
