54 survivors of the former Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and their relatives visited the Memorial

From 1 to 5 September 2022, Concentration camp survivors travelled from eleven countries with their relatives to take part in the event, the motto of which was ‘Days of Encounters and Commemoration’. The highlight was the communal commemoration last Sunday, which was attended by Minister of State Claudia Roth.

On account of the coronavirus pandemic, it had not been possible to invite survivors of the former concentration camp to visit the Memorial for two years. But a trip could finally be arranged this year.

A film of the commemoration event is available on YouTube.
