The Relief of Belsen

Postby US Rangers on Thu Jan 28, 2010 12:02 am

Hello to you all,

Did anybody here watch "The Relief of Belsen" on the Discovery Channel tonight? My god in heaven, to think this happened within living memory. What on earth possessed the perpetrators of such utter evil...

Best Regards,

Hi John.

I thought it was an excellent docudrama, very well made and not "hollywoodised" at all. It honoured in everyway the great work of the royal army medical core.

Oh yes, and such sterling work they did. We tend to think that once the Allies liberated the camps from the Nazi's that all was well, but the truth is that people continued to die for months after. Could it happen again?

As we speak in Burma Mock.... as long as people find reasons to hate one another, it always will.

Hello lads,

Maybe I'm wrong but I think the Nazi Germany was the worst. The Nazi Germans institutionalised the extermination of vast sections of society. They invented new state instruments such as the SS to participate and execute thier policies of extermination, then rape the victims of any wealth, and all this done by a so called civilised modern western nation :( Personally I think it should be a crucial part of the state educational curriculum to learn of the perverse deeds of Nazi Germany. There are still survivors of the Holocaust alive today who story should be told to all.

Best Regards,

There was a programme aired on RTE just before the relief of belsen so I got to watch both, featured a holocaust survivor who lives here in Ireland and the show followed him as he gave talks in schools about his experiences in belsen and in a ghetto before he was transported there.
