Helen Bamber is a renowned psychotherapist who founded the “Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture” when she was 65 years old. Her work goes way back to when she was 20 years old, when she went to the recently-liberated German concentration camp “Bergen-Belsen” to support survivors in the aftermath of World War II. She came face-to-face with people who had suffered unimaginable horrors, and says of the experience: "Many were to die but to all I could say [was] ‘your story will be told, I will be your witness.’” At 80 years old, she co-founded the “Helen Bamber Foundation,” where forms of clinical, legal and practical help for victims of interpersonal violence, such as torture and human trafficking, are available.
