German President Joachim Gauck (1st R) greets Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (2nd R) and Prince Philip (3rd R) at the Bellevue Palace in Berlin, Germany

British Monarch Queen Elizabeth II has made her first visit to a World War Two concentration camp, Bergen-Belsen, in northern Germany. The camp, where teenage diarist Anne Frank was among thousands to die, was liberated by British soldiers in 1945. The Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, laid a wreath at a memorial there on the final day of her four-day state visit to Germany.More than 50,000 prisoners from all over Europe were killed at Bergen-Belsen or died later as a result of their treatment in the camp.
