Gedenkstatte Bergen-Belsen, Bergen

Take a somber visit to Gedenkstatte Bergen-Belsen, a memorial at the site of Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp. Between 1942 and 1945, thousands of people died here, with up to 35,000 dying of typhus. When the camp was liberated, its prisoners were found sick and starving, while many of the dead remained unburied. The memorial and its museum feature photographs and videos of the survivors, as well as written stories. Large mounds mark mass burial sites.

  • A place that you need to visit to understand the enormity of the death of so many people. It is quiet yet eerie. You could only imagine the atrocities which occurred there.  more »
  • A beautiful sunny day. Right temperature. Free spirit and ready to plunge into atrocity. Bergen Belsen is this. It does not seem true, but in this forested peace, suffering and drama were everyday life. I recommend a studied approach. First the Documentation Center. Well-structured and with an instructive path. Then a ride in the park. No tickets. Stay time about 3 hours.

  • Important part of humen history we should not forget. A walk to the memorial obslik is recommended.
  • Interesting (and apauling) exhibition and documentation. Remember: Similar attitudes are surfacing everywhere in our time, right now, right here. Se, listen and lean!
