Summary:
"When the British army entered Belsen on 15 April 1945, the soldiers - many of whom had experienced the full horrors of war - could not have been prepared for what they were to find. At least 35,000 prisoners, mainly Jewish, perished at the camp; the sight of piles of unburied corpses and 61,000 emaciated, dying survivors was to haunt the liberators and the world."

Abstract:

"When the British army entered Belsen on 15 April 1945, the soldiers - many of whom had experienced the full horrors of war - could not have been prepared for what they were to find. At least 35,000 prisoners, mainly Jewish, perished at the camp; the sight of piles of unburied corpses and 61,000 emaciated, dying survivors was to haunt the liberators and the world." "The accounts in this book, many published for the first time, are by the soldiers, aid workers and former internees present at the liberation or during the later relief effort. They are testaments to the brave work undertaken in the most horrific of circumstances, backed up with chapters on the trial of the former guards and the historical background to the camp. And while, for most, Belsen is synonymous with Nazi barbarity, other testimonies show how it became a centre of hope for Jewish people after the Holocaust."--BOOK JACKET.
