I have just read, in this news article, that Bergen-Belsen was a death camp. Who knew?
This quote is from the news article:
Frieda Jaffe and Julius Maslovat are separated by more than 3,400 miles, but they share a common history of a childhood marred by tragedy.
Both were very young children born in Piotrkow, Poland, who survived the ghetto and the death camp of Bergen-Belsen during the Shoah, or Holocaust. Even so, they didn’t know one another.
I have a section on my scrapbookpages.com website about Bergen-Belsen which you can read at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/BergenBelsen/ConcentrationCamp.html
The photo below, from Wikipedia, shows the location of the “death camps.”
