KZ Bergen-Belsen.
Camp in which approximately 70 thousand people died, victims of hunger, typhus, chronic dysentery, maltreatment, forced labor and inclement cold.
Anne and her sister, Margot Frank, were two of the countless children who did not survive all of this in the camp.
The water well in the old photograph was located in the large women's field, serving as a reservoir for the showers of the hospital that existed there.
When British troops liberated the camp on April 15, 1945, thousands of inert bodies were scattered.
Collective pits were opened.
SS guards were forced to load the bodies of their victims into these pits, but in order for the task to be completed, it was necessary to use a tractor to push the bodies.
