Rear shot of tank entering camp, passes barbed wire fence. Pans to sign on left of entrance. Sign reads, "This is the site of the Infamous Belsen Concentration Camp. Liberated by the British ca. 15 April 1945. 10,000 unburied dead were found. Another 13,000 have since died. All of them victims of the German new order in Europe. And an example of Nazi Kultur." Same LS, pan to sign across deserted land, barbed wire, smoke in BG. More torching of buildings. Fast pan across lots of tiny brush fires. Soldiers on tank drive through camp.
