Introduction

    Located in Lower Saxony, the Bergen Belsen camp was established in April 1943 as a detention camp for prisoners who were to be exchanged with Germans imprisoned in Allied countries.
    During the year of 1943, Germans interned there Jews holding nationality of neutral countries such as Spain, Argentina, Turkey etc.
    After WW1 many Turkish Jews chose to live in France and in Belgium. Some of them kept their Turkish nationality. This is the reason why, once arrested, they were interned in Bergen Belsen that became a death camp by the beginning of 1944.
    The present index which includes 61 names of Turkish Jewish deportees, is based on the book: Bergen Belsen; 1940-1945 Niedersachsische Landerzentrale fuer Politische Bildung. Gedenkbuch ; haeflinge des Konzentrazionlager Bergen Belsen. Bergen Belsen, Gedenstatte, 1995. It lists Jews from all the nations who were interned in Bergen Belsen death camp.
