Relief of Belsen
Posted on December 2, 2013 by fergyluxe123
Here is my short film with Major Leonard Berney. Leonard, then aged 25, was a British Army major and one of the first soldiers to enter the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen.
He was responsible for the evacuation of the inmates out of the “horror camp” and subsequently became the Commandant of the Belsen Displaced Persons Camp, caring for 30,000 former prisoners. He was speaking at a University of Greenwich public lecture halls.
