It was true: there was hardly any standing room for the prisoners in this field. I managed to feed the crumbs through the barbed wire to some prisoners when I noticed some bodies on the ground. They had died of starvation and cold, I was told, and their bodies were not removed until darkness fell.
This was 50 years ago. I was a very young girl then but the memory of this event has never left me.
