Black and white photograph of prisoners at Bergen-Belsen in a muddy area. Includes text, "6.-- La vie des prisonnières au camp de concentration de Belsen."
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: This photo records the unspeakable disorder, filth, and overcrowding of the camp where -among many others-Anne and Margot Frank spent their last miserable days after having survived Westerbork and Auschwitz. Not long after witnessing her sister die of dysentery, Anne lost the battle to typhus. She was in all probability thrown into a mass grave-just one of the ten thousand unburied dead- when the camp was liberated by the British and Canadians just three weeks later
