Hungarian soldiers are made to serve food to ex-inmates at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp by the British. When the British and Canadians advanced on Bergen-Belsen in 1945, the German army negotiated a truce and exclusion zone around the camp to prevent the spread of typhus. On 11 April 1945 the Germans agreed to have the camp handed over without a fight. The camp was liberated on the afternoon of April 15, 1945. Still remaining at the camp were 200 SS troops, 400 German guards and 4,000 Hungarian soldiers. The Allies forced the SS troops, former guards and Hungarian troops to bury the dead and carry out other tasks within the camp whilst guarded by armed British soldiers with fixed bayonets to ensure that the work was done. The conditions at the camp so appalled British troops that many former guards and Hungarian soldiers were shot. Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, Lower Saxony, Germany. April 1945.
