Bergen-Belsen Revisited: Photographic Memoir of Colonel Charles Curtis Mitchell

Bergen-Belsen Revisited: Photographic Memoir of Colonel Charles Curtis Mitchell

"One picture showed me standing on the edge of an open grave. It was shot on purpose because I suddenly thought of all of the people I knew with short memories… They would be the ones who would say, “Nonsense Mitchell, Belsen couldn’t have been that bad…”

Photographed and narrated by Colonel Charles Curtis Mitchell, this eye-opening exhibition documents the first days of the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp for “…those not present as eyewitnesses, because such inhumanity would be beyond belief.”

Colonel Michell served as Director of the Pictorial Branch of the United States Army during World War II.

This photographic documentary is an excellent educational tool, reminding people of what once happened and, if we are not careful, what could happen again.
