"An Ambulance Driver Recalls the Bergen
Belsen Concentration Camp"
by Norman Shethar
1. In what condition were the prisoners at the camp? What changes took
place after the Allied Forces arrived?
2. What gave Shethar the impression that the guards were "ordinary
people"? Do you agree with him? Why or why not?
3. Who are the "good" Germans? In what sense does Shethar feel
we are all like them?
4. Would you have been able to serve as an ambulance driver at the camp?
What would have been most difficult for you?
Put yourself in the place of a Jew living in Germany during the Holocaust.
Describe your feelings.
