Natolski, Richard Dr. (Camp 1 Hospital)
A political prisoner at Belsen. In the very early days Hardman appealed to Colonel Johnston, who allowed him to set up a “first-aid centre” in camp 1, the death camp. With Doctor Natolski and Lieutenant Marian Tatarczuk, who were both Polish political prisoners, and Stephen Green of the British Red Cross, Hardman created the first improvised hospital at Belsen in what had been the SS pharmacy, which contained some medical supplies. Hardman got it cleaned up by SS women, and doctors and nurses among the inmates helped to establish it. There was space for about a dozen beds, with two patients to a bed, so that it accommodated twenty to thirty sick people at a time. Serving in the first four weeks of liberation as a miniature hospital, its staff struggled to save lives, caring for critically ill people until they could be evacuated to the new hospital in the military barracks. Affidavit of Richard Natolski at Belsen Trial I am a doctor of medicine and 42 years old. I was arrested on 7th January, 1940, as being a meber of the Polish Partisan Army. I have been in concentration camps ever since and came to Belsen only on 11th April, 1945.
