I am writing in connection with the liberation of Bergen-Belsen on 15
April 1945. As you know the senior medical officer who organised and
co-ordinated the medical relief of the camp was Brigadier HL Glyn
Hughes of the Royal Army Medical Corps.

Following research in 2004 & 2005 and with the support of his family,
Lord Janner, Sir Martin Gilbert, Rabbi Barry Marcus and others, I
travelled to Jerusalem and visited Yad Vashem to request the
Department of the Righteous to consider designating Glyn Hughes as a
“Righteous Gentile”.

The department are keen to accept letters from Bergen-Belsen survivors
who may recall Glyn Hughes and the work of his medical staff.
I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks.

Yours sincerely,
