1951 August 15, BERGEN - BELSEN

Bergen-Belsen Camp
The Holocaust Encyclopedia
The last inmates of Bergen-Belsen leave the camp on the way to the United States. Bergen- Belsen was originally set up in 1943. Many of its inmates were Jewish prisoners who had dual citizenship with Latin American countries or entry permits to Palestine. A few hundred were used by the Germans for prisoner exchanges. Though not a death camp per se, over 51,000 people died there, including Anne Frank.
