Caption on back of photograph reads: "The Belsen Horror Camp. Picture taken at Belsen concentration camp 'The nearest thing I know to a spectacle of absolute evil' are the words of one newspaper correspondent. Hundreds of people, for whom the British liberation came too late, are still dying every week. Although the figure is gradually decreasing. British newsreel operators recorded for the world the stories of survivors, and took statements from some of the S.S. camp officials. Picture shows: Hebrew Padre Rev. I.H. Hardman of Leeds and Roman Catholic Padre Father M.C. Morrison of Dublin, giving the last sacrements [sic] beside a communal grave."
