“Unlike the infamous extermination or death camps such as Auschwitz or Treblinka, Belsen wasn’t designed specifically as a place for industrialised killing. It had no gas chambers. Instead, the prisoners were slaughtered by systematic neglect – many starved to death, others succumbed to typhus, tuberculosis, typhoid fever or dysentery, diseases that ravaged the camp, fostered by the lack of clean drinking water and minimal sanitation.”

including survivors (with age on arrival) … • maurice blik (4), • peter lantos (5), • mala tribich (14), • anita lasker-wallfisch (18), • zdenka fantlova (22), • gena turgel (22),
