About this unit

The Surviving Belsen unit was compiled by Durham County Record Office and Marie Atherton, teacher in charge of History at Greencroft School, County Durham, in 2005. We wish to thank The Historical Association for allowing us to reproduce the 'Washing Line' activitiy from 'Teaching History'. Our thanks also go to the Durham Light Infantry Museum for their assistance and to the Northern Grid for Learning for linking their World War 2 site with ours.
