Belsen: Harold le Druillenec

22nd november 2016, on bbc radio 4 (recorded september 1945) 

the man from belsen (2-minute extract)

Harold Osmond le Druillenec (1911-1985), a Channel Islander, one of only two British survivors from Belsen, recounts the appalling conditions inside the concentration camp during its final days, describing it as ‘the foulest and vilest spot that ever soiled the surface of this Earth‘.

Inside the camp for its last five days, he endured starvation, thirst, filth and lack of shelter. He witnessed beatings and shootings and, of course, the fate to which most succumbed.”
