Abstract:

"This volume brings together essays from international experts based on the 60th anniversary seminar held at Imperial War Museum London in 2005. It also includes testimony from survivors, eyewitness accounts from liberators and relief workers, and the scripts of two BBC radio broadcasts. Much has been written on Belsen; with the benefits of new documentation and a rigorous scholarly approach, this book offers an original and at times controversial reassessment of the camp, its liberation and the way Belsen is remembered in Britain and Germany."--BOOK JACKET.
