No one of that name testified at the Belsen trial (the Nuremberg ref. is erroneous of course), but Sophia Litwinska was the only witness who actually testified in person at the trial who claimed to have escaped from a gas chamber (or to be precise: let out of the gas chamber by the Nazis mid-gassing), and her testimony was further notable for her hysteria in the witness box (which was reported by the press and was mentioned by the Judge Advocate C.L. Stirling in his trial notes). Perhaps it's Litwinska 6 years, a marriage, a new name and a lot more pies later, or perhaps not.
This is Major T. C. M. Winwood, the brave defence counsel of Joseph Kramer, looking far more like a typical Belsen survivor than most of the Belsen survivors pictured above.
