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.”
