    Another year passes...

    I recently interviewed a lady who was liberated at Bergen-Belsen, having endured the utter horror of other major camps within the KZ system...and several satellite camps too...hell on Earth...no other words can describe the camp during its latter stages.

    This day marks the 72nd anniversary.

    Today, April 15th 2019, marks another year since the camp was liberated by British forces. The lady I interviewed a few years ago, one of the survivors of the camp, has sadly passed away. The memories she shared with me personally and, on a broad international scale, will not be forgotten.

    When you think of WWII, think not only of shiny belt buckles, elusive insignia and such...but also consider the reality of war...that is, utter hell...and not just for the brave who stood alongside each other to face the enemy...but also the civilians...the innocents...millions and millions of innocents…

    Well over 50,000 died at Bergen-Belsen. Conditions were so bad toward the end of the war that in March 1945 alone, around 18,000 perished.

    The image below, taken from the official memorial site, shows British Army Rabbi Leslie Hardman, stood next to one of the numerous open mass graves at the camp. It is dated 23 April 1945.
