Segment 1 - Back to Belsen Part 2
Berthe Meijer is a holocaust survivor. Last week she told us how, in 1943, in Nazi occupied Holland, she, her sister, mother and father were rounded up by the Nazi’s and sent to Camp Westerbork in the Netherlands and then on to Bergen Belsen in Germany where she would spend the rest of the war.
