When tried by the British at the first Belsen trial, Anna Hempel was 45, and married with a 17 year old son. She had been conscripted to the SS in May 1944 and was as a clerk in a factory where Ravensbrueck (a women only concentration camp) prisoners were forced to work. In February 1945, when her home town was about to be overrun by the Red Army, she was transferred/evacuated to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, where she worked 16 hours days in the camp kitchen. She complained continuously to her superiors about the lack of food they had to feed the 57,000 prisoners (in a camp designed to hold 3,000). She stated that if she caught prisoners stealing food she would slap them on the face opposed to reporting them, and she once hit a thief of turnips with a stick. She even caught typhus in April 1945, and was in the Belsen hospital when she was arrested as a "war criminal" by the British. She was sentenced to a 10 year prison sentence for her evil and inhuman war crimes, but released after serving 5½ years.
