April 29, 1945 Bergen-Belsen

IV. April 29, 1945 Bergen-Belsen, Germany - Colville’s visit to the the Bergen-Belsen Concentration camp less than two weeks after liberation by Canadian and British soldiers left a profound and life-long impression on the artist. The final movement of the work stands as a remembrance for those forever changed by the horrors of that place - the liberated and not insignificantly, the liberators.
