The concentration camp in Bergen-Belsen once was a place of suffering; today it has become a place of remembrance and a museum telling about its history. When British troops liberated the concentration camp near Hannover in April 1945 they not only found ten thousand sick and starving people, many of them children, but also thousands of dead: Photographs from 1945 show naked bodies of women, men and children piled upon each other. Unburied. Bergen-Belsen is for those seeking to remember and those learning more about the history of this place in the memorial’s museum.
