The Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Liberated 4/15/45 by the British. 70,000 prisoners died there. 35,000 of typhus in the first few months of 1945, including Anne Frank. Soldiers found 53,000 inmates - most acutely sick and starving. The BBC reported,"...A mother, driven mad, screamed at a British sentry to give her milk for her child, and thrust the tiny mite into his arms, then ran off, crying terribly. He opened the bundle and found the baby had been dead for days." www.worldwar2tours.com by debra
