The image ends up looking surreal - which in fact suits the place!

Why a soldier's uniform in a concentration camp? The man would have been in a POW-camp normally. Or is it an art installation that's not part of a documentary display?

In my mind I'm comparing this with the uniforms display in the Historiale de Peronne, where all the uniforms are displayed lying in holes in the floor. I think the Bergen Belsen display is more subtle.

I looked it up, and it was liberated by the English indeed; but there was also a POW-camp. He looks so un-martial to me with his big bag of belongings, perhaps the display is referring to a POW.

Fantastic. To have seen and then realized so well the photographic potential of this scene takes an impeccable eye.

This is probably one of the saddest pictures I've ever seen... The pain and the noise are washed away by time and all that remains is the emptiness. This is a stunning work of art.

Well, this is so sad but it was made in such a sad place and the display itself knows that it is in a sad place and that it is all now about sadness - - the only thing left about those places.
