Belsen conditions testimony

Testimony of Herta Ehlert, a member of the SS unit at Belsen (p. 709):
———————————————————————
The conditions in Belsen were a shame and a disgrace. I consider
that the people chiefly responsible were Kramer the Kommandant,
Dr. Horstmann, Untersturmfuehrer Klipp, who was for some time
Kramer’s second in command, and Haupsturfuehrer Vogler, who
worked in Kramer’s office and was responsible for food supply.
I say that Kramer was responsible for the conditions, among
other reasons, because on one occasion when I complained of the
increasing death rate to Kramer he replied, “let them die, why
should you care?”.
