Re: Research on Concentration Camp Liberators

In March-May 1945 British armies in northwest Europe liberated a number of concentration camps (Bergen-Belsen and Neuengamme, for example) and a larger number of work camps (Arbeitslager) and work education camps (Arbeitserziehungslager).

The liberation of Bergen-Belsen received most attention due to vast number of dead victims who had not been buried. There is a BBC news report from the liberation (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hLYavpMSFs) of Belsen.
