    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nothing can quite prepare you for a visit to Bergen-Belsen. Between the years of 1940-45 approximately 50 000 Jews, political hostages and other prisoners died here. It is also infamous because this was the place where Anne Frank died after being moved here from Auschwitz.

    There is a permanent exhibition there with detailed accounts of the camps history and a short film is also played reularly. This really sets the scene for the walk through the grounds where you are confronted with mounds in different areas of the memorial with markings such as '2500 bodies lie here'. Makes you feel a little uneasy in the stomach I assure you.

    Memorial to Anne Frank
