Obelisk and Inscription Wall

In early 1947, on the orders of the British military government, work began on the construction of a central monument, a 24-metre-high obelisk and a 50-metre-long inscription wall. The wall bears multiple inscriptions in various languages commemorating the victims of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. The official ceremonies commemorating the liberation of the concentration camp by British troops on 15 April 1945 and the victims of this camp are held here each year.
