excellent film worth watching, and the actors were cast appropriately.:
27 February 2015 | by susanlincoln766See all my reviews

My father was one of those British men that first entered belsen and never after the war could he find the courage to talk about it. I am so very proud of him. Along with the other soldiers who where with him. He served at the front line then was commissioned to undertake the release and care of the captives in the camp.I believe the smells of rotting corpses and the degrading conditions that the prisoners had to endure lived with my father for the rest of his life. He kept this to himself because he did not want to relive the horrors. I would like very much to thank the people involved in the making of this film, and on behalf of my father thank you.
