Description

Black and white phtograph of men standing around a large sign with title,"This is the Site of the Infamous Belsen Concentration Camp."

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The British and Canadians liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp with the cooperation of the Jewish brigade. The horror that greeted them upon entering the camp and seeing the unburied dead intermingled with the starving and sick and scarcely living “survivors” can scarcely be hinted at in this sign and in the incomprehension of the soldiers standing about.
