'That is Bella, Only Seven': The Depiction of Holocaust Survivors in Liberator Narratives

Dr. Mark Celinscak will discuss his recent book, which re-examines the surrender and relief of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.


Witnessing the immediate aftermath of the Holocaust had a profound effect on the military forces that liberated Nazi concentration camps. Dr. Mark Celinscak will discuss his recent book, which re-examines the surrender and relief of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northwest Germany at the end of the Second World War. His talk will survey the personal narratives of both British and Canadian military personnel as they responded to the situation at the camp, drawing on diaries, letters, and personal interviews.

Dr. Celinscak is a historian of twentieth-century Britain and Europe, specializing in war, Holocaust and genocide studies. He is the author of Distance from the Belsen Heap: Allied Forces and the Liberation of a Nazi Concentration Camp, a work which re-examines the surrender and relief of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northwest Germany at the end of the Second World War.
