A memorial museum dedicated to the Jewish victims who were killed by the Nazis in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp was opened at the site of the camp today. A special section of the museum, documenting various aspects of life and death in the camp, was dedicated to Anne Frank, the Dutch girl put to death in Bergen-Belsen, who left a diary giving a grim account of the Nazi persecution of Jews.
