A pocket history of the infamous Nazi concentration camp, Bergen Belsen. How did Belsen become the visual synonym for Nazi atrocities? What happened after libearation? What happened in the trials that followed: this account reveals all.  Following libeartion, the camp was fully documented by the Bristish Army Film and Photographic Unit and the films shown across the world. Belsen holds a special place as a lasting reminder of the horror of the Nazi genocide and was where Anne Frank and her sister Margot, transferred from Auschwitz, died just a few weeks before libeartion.
