A Source of Wonder: The Return to Life of a Child Survivor of Bergen-Belsen

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When Brigadier Hughes liberated the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, 25,000 of the 40,000 survivors needed immediate medical care. Among those was the presenter's mother, Rachel Genuth, a 15-year-old whose entire family, save one sister, had been killed. Learn about Rachel's rescue and why Hughes considered the revival of those at death's door to be a "source of wonder."
