Virtual reconstruction of Bergen-Belsen

This is a 3D reconstruction of the Bergen Belsen concentration camp, part of the installation “Here, Space of Memory” a collaborative effort between the research group SPECS and the memorial center of Bergen Belsen to commemorate the 60 year anniversary of the latter in 2012. The reconstruction has since been updated and extended to reflect earlier historical states.

This video shows a shortened version of the installation with the 3D reconstruction and the historical audio of the 1945 BBC radio report by Richard Dimbleby.  That audio can still be heard here.
