Fairweather, John, Walter (Jack) - poss 113th LAA
Chief amongst these soldiers’ descriptions of the horrors of Belsen are the letters of 11407267 Gunner John Walter Fairweather (known as Jack). His son Stephen found three hundred and seventy six letters covering the period December 1943 to November 1946 which Jack Fairweather sent to his wife-to-be Renee. Five were dated between April 23rd. and May 10th. 1945. Such was the dreadful reaction of the Allied authorities to finding Belsen, they relaxed the censorship restrictions and encouraged the soldiers to tell everyone ‘back home’ what they had seen. Jack Fairweather makes this very important observation in his first (and longest) letter dated 23rd. April 1945, four days after his arrival.

Fiennes, Nathaniel (Lord Saye & Sele)
We went into lots o huts and camps. The smell was appalling, and there were rows and rows of people inside. You couldn’t tell whether they were dead or alive: they might have been either. “And then outside we saw a tractor and trailer with heaps of bodies on it, and a German sitting on top of the bodies smoking a cigarette. “Close by there was an enormous pit and in it perhaps 500 bodies, but it may have been a thousand, I don’t know. It was a very large number of bodies.”

Fuld, Heinz Maj.
Dr Heinz Fuld, a well-known consultant physician on Merseyside, died on 21 January, aged 99. For nearly 70 years he had a home in North Wales in Llanarmon yn Ial, from where, after retiring from the NHS, he travelled to provide an outstanding private Rodney Street practice. Dr Fuld was born in Berlin, studied medicine in that city, as well as in Frankfurt, Vienna, Munich, Freiburg, and Heidelberg. He did research in Freiburg under the guidance of Hans Krebs, Nobel Laureate, and followed his mentor to the United Kingdom in 1933 as a result of Nazi oppression. He obtained his MRCP in Edinburgh before entering general practice in south Liverpool until he was appointed physician to Sefton and Newsham General Hospitals. A major in the Royal Army Medical Corps during the second world war, he was the first British doctor to enter Belsen on its liberation. One can only wonder what distress this must have caused him—a secret he retained throughout his long life.
