Brigadier Glyn Hughes was among the first Allied soldiers to enter Bergen-Belsen. Rachel Gemuth, then just 15, was one of its inmates. This account by her daughter draws on her memories, Hughes’s diaries, other oral histories and documentary sources to record their respective journeys – following him from Normandy to a defeated Germany, and her from Hungary via Auschwitz to Belsen – before recounting the horror of the camp, and the justice administrated to its perpetrators.
