    My father, a British army man, took me to visit Belsen back in the late 50s. I was still a school kid then but I remember the eeriness of the place, the quiet, no birds singing and yet it was out in the countryside. In those days, the mass graves were just mounds with simple plaques indicating how many were buried. Later in life I viewed the documentary films when the British army liberated the camp, quite shocking and horrible to view. It provokes deep thought on our humanity or lack of it.

      Dear Mike, thank you so much for sharing your experience. We visited in Dachau on a trip through Bavaria which in many ways mirrored your experience. You have given me a nudge to share my experiences , too. You will take those images to your grave.
