Bergen-Belsen liberation: Tank driver John Darby recalls opening gates
Seventy years ago British troops entered the German concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen. One of those to witness the horrors first hand was John Darby, who used his Sherman tank to open the gates. This is his story.
On 15 April 1945, shuffling along the road are a dozen or so German officers who, in fractured bursts of English, speak of "prison camp", "disease", "typhus".
John Darby is inside a Sherman tank, travelling in the opposite direction with the British Army's 11th Armoured Division.
The "prison camp" - now nearby - is Bergen-Belsen, near Hannover in Germany.
Inside are piles of rotting corpses and thousands of sick and starving prisoners, kept in severely overcrowded and dirty compounds.
Mr Darby, now 86 and living in the Suffolk market town of Bury St Edmunds, was the first liberator in.
"I went up to the gates," he said, "pushed them open with the tank.
"I was the first there to discover it.
"We knew it was a camp, but it wasn't an extermination camp - but people died and were piled up in beds and round and about like rotten logs of wood, which we could see at a distance.
"We saw young German troops were shooting at prisoners trying to climb over the wire fence, but our colonel started shooting them.
"I shot four. They were burning documents as fast as they could.
"I was standing there keeping an eye on the colonel, who was still shooting these Nazi youth, when I felt something touch my leg.
"I saw a hand and then I saw a face appear and saw these eyes and said 'It's alright love, you're free now'.
"I didn't go any further and radioed the Red Cross medics and when they arrived we were told to move on.
"There weren't a lot of Germans left in the camp, but a lot of them were hung there eventually, I think.
"I cried and I've never forgotten it.
"I tried not to talk about it after the war, but 20 years later I exploded one night - I went potty and didn't know what the heck was happening.
"I went to see the doctor and he said I'd got to talk about it, to get better."
