About the event

Witnessing the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust had a profound effect on the military forces that liberated Nazi concentration camps. Dr. Mark Celinscak will discuss his recent book, which re-examines the surrender and relief of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northwest Germany at the end of the Second World War. His talk will survey the personal narratives of both British and Canadian military personnel as they responded to the situation at the camp, drawing on diaries, letters, and personal interviews.
