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.

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!
A very tragic part of History is kept alive to educate and remember about the past. A lot of personal belongings, viedos and written history about the place are displayed. Free entry. Has a cafe. The grave of Anne Frank can be found along with other lives that were lost during that era. A very historic place to vist.
I was there in 1987 will never forget. An experience beyond amazing.
Unforgettable experience! After a visit one realizes just how so many people suffered the atrocities of war!
