My father was part of the ambulance unit at the relief of Belsen
19 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recall my father telling me a long time ago about his experiences at Belsen. It had such a profound effect on him that he only ever spoke once about it and not even once to my two sisters. From his descriptions, the movie is an accurate representation of the events. The army team involved were true hero's who saved hundreds. This should be compulsory viewing for the schools curriculum as it demonstrates both the depravity of human beings to others and conversely, their humanity. Having visited the site in the 80's I recall the oppressive atmosphere felt in the region, and this was before I was aware of the dreadful events that had taken place there.
