When we moved from Sennelager to Bunde. I had to make new friends, and one kept asking us if we would visit Belsen with her , and her family.
We all decided to go one nice sunny day, when we got there we looked at all the photographs on show, and it was really awful to see what had gone on.It really brought things about war home to you.
Once we went to walk around the grounds, a drizzle started to fall, there were signs not to stray from the paths as you could be disturbing someone's rest,There were huge mounds saying around 30,000 bodies lay here and some held even more.
We walked until we reach the memorial wall for all of these poor unfortunate people, I stopped there as I did not want to go near any gas chambers . They are however concereted up now.
Bones were still being found in the farm grounds that was next to Belsen.
We noticed that nothing grew in that place although there were trees all around the outside, also no birds flew over there.
We slowly made our way out with the drizzle still falling.
As soon as we got outside it was a beautiful sunny day again.
I found the place very eerie, I would never visit another of these camps again.
I think I saw enough, there.
