Collection Summary
The majority of the Charles Phillip Sharp collections concerns the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Sharp’s records give first hand account of what he saw at the camp, and the immediate goals the British Army had in trying to save the survivors. This is further told in the Story of Belsen by Captain A. Pares, which gives the official military report on the camp. Also included are lecture notes that Sharp gave well after his time with the Army, detailing his exxperience in liberating Bergen-Belsen. Other documents include various items related to Sharp’s stay in the army, such as a requisition receipt and invitations to military banquets. Also included are newspaper clippings saved from Sharp’s time during the War, as well as a personal diary that he kept and cassette tapes of Sharp reading his memoir.
