75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIBERATION OF BERGEN BELSEN

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Bergen Belsen Concentration Camp. The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum will be following the story of the men of 249 Battery, 63 Anti-Tank Regiment (Oxfordshire Yeomanry), Royal Artillery from January 1945 to the end of the war. These men and others would be involved in, what was described by the battery commander, Major Barnett as “one of the most extraordinary and in the event traumatic events that can ever have happened in the history of the Oxfordshire Yeomanry”.

We will be using a range of source materials including ‘Yeomanry….Memories’ from which many of Major Barnett’s quotes are taken.
