On April 25th, 2006, the staff of israelreporter.com discovered and posted a short audio clip of Holocaust survivors in the Bergen Belsen death camp singing the Hatikvah immediately after liberation on the 20th of April, 1945. The clips was posted to coincide with the observance of Holocaust Memorial Day in Israel without knowing the effect and controversy that it would engender. After being flooded with requests for authentication of the media clip as well as survivors themselves either supporting or denying the validity of the audio recording, a listener inquired to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Musicologist of the Museum provided verification of the BBC audio clip as authentic. Due to the massive interest in this clip, the media team of israelreporter.com have produced an audio/video photo essay of Bergen Belsen, which includes over 40 pictures exclusively from Bergen Belsen, and the now-famous mp3 audio clip of the survivors singing Hatikvah and another opening clip from a BBC reporter as he entered the hellish scenes of post-liberation Bergen Belsen. We caution that certain of the scenes are intensely graphic and brutal, and require discretion prior to viewing.
