Bergen-Belsen Museum

A special section of the photo exhibits in the old Bergen-Belsen Museum was devoted to Nazi history and the persecution of the Jews and German citizens who opposed the Nazis. On October 28, 2007, a new Museum opened at the Bergen-Belsen Memorial Site.

Photo exhibit shows a picture of political prisoners lined up for roll call at Dachau in the background with photos of anti-Fascists who opposed Hitler and the Third Reich. From the German point of view, these men were traitors to their country.

Display shows the book burning in Germany in 1933 in the background with photos of Jews who fled Germany, including Albert Einstein.

Exhibit shows a map of the camp, including the SS Training Camp which was right next to the Bergen-Belsen POW camp and exchange camp.
