Belsen and its Liberation

The Liberation of Bergen-Belsen – 70 Years On

On 15 April 1945, British soldiers of the Second Army, who were completely unprepared for what they were about to encounter, arrived at the gates of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp near Hanover, Germany. Inside the camp the horrified troops found some 10,000 unburied dead in addition to the mass graves already containing 40,000 more corpses.

Bergen-Belsen was the only concentration camp taken by the British. Details did not appear in the media until a couple of days after the liberation when the first medical team arrived. One of the reasons the Germans agreed to surrender Belsen was because so many of the inmates were diseased – during the latter part of the war as many as 500 a day were perishing from the long-term effects of starvation as well as the resultant diseases.

Recent reports claim that teenage diarist Anne Frank’s remains may have been buried in a mass grave at the camp.

Anderson Medal Presentation

We are proud to announce that Dr Susan Rose, author of England’s Medieval Navy 1066-1509: Ships, Men & Warfare (Seaforth Publishing, 2013), is to be presented with the Anderson Medal, awarded by the Society for Nautical Research.

The judging committee felt that the author ‘has done a magnificent job in researching and writing about an era that is often neglected and perhaps sometimes ignored in maritime history. Her book, which interpreted a difficult subject in an easily read and coherent way, was also very well referenced and illustrated.’

The presentation ceremony, along with a talk by Dr Rose, will take place in the Leopold Muller Lecture Theatre at the National Maritime Museum on Thursday, 16 April. For booking information, visit the SNR website.
