Today, April 15, 2015, marks the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp by the British army. Last night on PBS, there was an historical film of that event. There were dead, emaciated bodies that numbered in the thousands, and were left out in the open for all to witness. How some were able to survive such raw evil is amazing, yet they did, even though their lives were changed and deeply wounded forever.
The Holocaust Educational Trust has produced a 13 page PDF on the subject, which is available online here. I encourage readers to read it, as there are several Holocaust survivor accounts included in the document.
