A British officer recalls discovering Belsen

This article is a sobering account by a British officer (now in his 80's) of how he stumbled across Belsen at the end of the War.

  • Linked here from the Daily/Sunday Telegraph site (which is openly accessible), it is actually reproduced from the current issue of the Spectator, the British political/cultural weekly. The 'Speccie' veers backwards and forwards on Jewish issues. It doesn't seem to quite have a perspective on this likeable, but strange tribe.
