Bergen-Belsen POW & KZ Camp - Celle - Germany - World War II - Memorial - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
Bergen-Belsen was one of the many German POW and concentration (KZ)camps that were established during the 1930's and 1940's. The camp was not as such a death camp but a work camp, which contained Russian POW's, women and other types of prisoners. Even if it was not at death camp it was still a horrible place to be and thousands of prisoners died.
