Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp was liberated. Today I was online and I came across the Tweet which the Auschwitz Museum had just posted to remind us about it.The images and the events that occured there must be remembered by us. Thousands of people died there because of the belief - most of them were Jews while other people fighting against the Nazis.
15 April 1945 | Soldiers of the British 11th Armoured Division liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. At least 52,000 of the total of around 120,000 prisoners died in the camp. https://t.co/cqLqkFalRM pic.twitter.com/jEWgfPY9pf— Auschwitz Memorial (@AuschwitzMuseum) 15 aprile 2018
I visited this camp many years ago, we could not see much about the camp but we learnt about the stories of men and women who had died there. Among the people who were killed or died there we have the famous young girl whose Diary is still read today: Anne Frank.
I was visitng the camp with my students and an old Italian man who had been imprisoned in Germany and he was presenting the voice of a person who had survived- many are not living anymore. We learnt how the war had changed people and violence had shaped the lives of the many who were living in concentration camps.
Let's remember and let's work together to make this world become a better world today.
