My uncle was part of London's Jewish volunteers sent to Belsen when it was liberated. He set up 'Sam's Cafe' to feed the starving to make them fit enough to travel. Met a Polish woman. Married her.

It was only on his deathbed in 2003 that my grandfather told anyone he had been one of the first into Belsen when it was liberated. He cried as he told how he had lived with the horror for 50-odd years.

My father too was one of the first to get to Belsen. He didn't talk about it until the very end of his life. The guilt he felt at not being able to do more to alleviate the suffering lived with him until he died 7 years ago today.

My friends' grandfather ("Pop" to all of us) was among the first of the Allied forces to reach Belsen. It never left him.

I met a lady patient with the tattoo when training as psychiatric nurse. She carried food with her constantly and hid it everywhere. Heartbreaking.

I nursed in Leeds and also remember many patients with tattooed numbers experiencing terrible flashbacks. Extremely humbling. I always felt unable to make them completely better.

I have worked in the nhs in N London for 40 years. I recall the first time I met a woman with a number tattooed on her arm. She was delirious & asked me to help her ‘escape’. She was re-living her camp experience and was terrified. I will never forget her and she taught me much

Thank you for sharing this. We must never forget these horrors. How wonderful that your mother came through when countless millions didn’t. I went to pay respects at Belsen 35 years ago: it was tangibly chilling and full of sorrow. May the memory of all be a blessing.

That’s right! The Netherlands in a Nutshell it was called, and the Anne Frank Trust gave her a new copy for her 80th birthday.

My father was with those who liberated Belsen, at the Lüneberg trials and never recovered from what he witnessed. He said the horrendous films for the news were taken after the worst had been cleared up. May your Mother rest in peace.

She was never bitter and neither was he. They loved life and freedom and this country. So it’s traditional to finish a thread with the word ends/. But at this moment of freedom I finish the thread with begins/.

Margarethe died at 1.15am on 26th February. Her daughters sail to America and all remember the moment they see the Statue of Liberty. Mirjam meets my father, a survivor himself of deportation to Siberia. She becomes a maths teacher and together they have a long and happy life.

My grandfather is in New York securing the supply of his library on the Nazis, which is to provide one of the main sources of evidence at the Nuremberg trials. A telegram has been sent to him carrying this news.

25 January 1945 The train crosses into Switzerland. Margarethe has sacrificed everything, given every scrap of food to her children, protected them against all, but she has seen her girls to freedom.
