Personal Quote:

Speaking of his experience of his part in the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen Concentration camp: Millions of words have been written about these horror camps, many of them by inmates of those unbelievable places. I've tried, without success, to describe it from my own point of view, but the words won't come. To me Belsen was the ultimate blasphemy.

Trivia:

Children include: Elaine with his first wife, and Stuart "Gus" Bentine, Fusty Bentine, Serena "Suki" Bentine and Richard Bentine with his second. See more »
