A famous photo taken at Belsen. The photo was taken by Sgt Oakes on 21st April 1945, stating “Women of the camp collect bread ration.”Bronislawa wiechowna belsen

Coloured by Klimenko – Mark Henry spotted his grandma, Bronislawa Wiechowna, we’ve marked her with a red dot. “Grandma would never speak about it.” Says Mark.

It really is wonderful to put a name to this photo, thanks Mark.

This archive has been established after my own relative, Reg Price, took part in the liberation and subsequent humanitarian effort of Bergen Belsen in April 1945. Reg produced this famous sign at Belsen. As part of the 113th DLI, Reg and his comrades were at Belsen for 5 weeks and left when the last hut was empty and ceremonially burnt down. This archive compiles all available resources to build a lasting tribute to all the men and women who helped - any unit, any nationality. If you have a relative, or any info, on the relief effort at Belsen, we’d love you to please get in touch. Email us: you Nick Price CreativesFacebookTwitter
