The story of the former prisoners who had to remain in Belsen after it was liberated.

Historian Rainer Schulz tells the story of the former prisoners who had to remain in Belsen after the concentration camp was liberated by the British in April 1945.

For the next five years, a temporary community was contructed there: people who had lost everything married again, started new families and many dreamed of starting a new life in Israel.

Emerging from the shadows of its ghastly origins, Belsen became an unlikely centre of Jewish regeneration, resistance and hope for its survivors.
