Notes
B&w photograph with a white border. An outdoor portrait of the site of Bergen-Belsen after Liberation. There is a sign that says "This is the site of the infamous Belsen concentration camp liberated by the British on 15 April 1945. 10,000 unburied dead were found here. Another 13,000 have since died. All of them victims of the German new order in Europe, and an example of Nazi kultur." The sign stands in front of a barbed wire fence. In the background to the left, there is a watch tower. Narrative: A collection of photographs was brought back to Canada by RAF soldier Frank Wilshaw, who visited the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp after Liberation.
