I am staying in Germany for a few weeks. We would like to visit a WWII concentration camp. The memorial sites of Bergen Belsen and Buchenwald are both about the same distance from where we are staying.
Can anyone recommend one or the other?
Has anyone been to both and have a preference?
I realize most of these camps are destroyed and that the Bergen Belsen Memorial is new. From what I have read it sounds like Buchenwald has more to see - but that may just be because the memorial has been there longer and there is more info.
Any help would be great. Going to be there in June 2009.
