  Bergen-Belsen
Bergen-Belsen was a concentration camp near Hanover in northwest Germany, located between the villages of Bergen and Belsen.
In 1946, Belsen served as the largest DP camp for more than 11,000 Jews; it was the only exclusively Jewish camp in the British zone of Germany.
The camp’s SS commandant, Josef Kramer, known as the "Beast of Belsen" was tried and found guilty by a British military court and was subsequently hanged.
