Features in a cine film within the camp, taken on 23rd and 24th April, 1945.
“Today is the 24th of April 1945. My name is Gunner James William Illingworth and I live at Cheshire. I am present in Belsen camp doing guard duty over the S.S. men. The things in this camp are beyond describing. When you actually see them for yourself, you know what you’re fighting for here. A picture in the paper can’t describe it at all. We actually know now, what has been going on in these camps and I know, personally, what I’m fighting for.”
