#Belsen75 Ambassador Campaign

Today marks 75 years since British forces liberated Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. We are asking our Ambassadors to join us in ensuring people remember this significant anniversary, and that they share the accounts of eye-witnesses who were there. Learn more about the history of the camp here.

How to take part today in the #Belsen75 Ambassador Campaign:

Follow these simple steps:

    1. Choose one of the #Belsen75 posters below by right-clicking and then clicking 'save image as'.
    2. Take a picture of yourself holding one of the #Belsen75 posters found below (print it out or perhaps display on an iPad/tablet and have a photo taken by a housemate or family member!)
    3. Post the photo on your social media and tag the Trust– Facebook (@HETcharity), Twitter (@HolocaustUK) or Instagram (@HolocaustUK). Make your post viewable to the public, otherwise we can’t see it to share it.

Remember to use the hashtags #Belsen75, #ThisIsOurStory, and #HETAmbassadors

Your post should tell your followers why you want them to remember Belsen. You can post your own words or use the following:

“Today, marks 75 years since British forces liberated the Nazi concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen. Learn more about *insert person from poster's name* and the history of Belsen at https://www.het.org.uk/belsen-75th-anniversary I remember because XXX ”@HolocaustUK #Belsen75 #ThisIsOurStory”
