British Paramount News No. 1532

Britain welcomes children liberated from the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp

1945 1 mins

Overview

Britain welcomes children liberated from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Knowing what we do of the horror - and murdered family members - they’d left behind, these newsreel images of happy kids eating and dancing assume an unbearable poignancy.

Although the finished issue of British Paramount News would have been released with commentary and music, the material in the BFI National Archive is mute; it may also not represent the final edit of the images.
