Bergen-Belsen

Visited after seeing all those tanks – Pictures speak louder than words.

Mass grave mound – there are about a score or more of these on the site, with numbers between the 800 in this one and around 5000 in several others.
Jewish Memorial
Memorial Column & Wall
Polish Memorial Plaque
General memorial plaque

There is also an excellent on-site museum with many audio-visual segments in a variety of languages as well as a great many artifacts and the story of the various phases the Camp went through … it wasn’t always a Death Camp as such. One of the better presented such museums I have seen (Sachsenhausen near Berlin and Dachau near Munich) in 2002/3. Pulls no punches.
