Eric Lines – 113th DLI

My Father, Major Eric Lines MM RA was part of the liberation of Belsen. He never spoke of the experience so I never got to have a conversation with him about it and his other wartime exploits. We have the citation for the MM which gives some clue as to what he must have gone though at such an early age. Liberation of Bergen Belsen

Liberation of Bergen BelsenI’m lucky to have newsreel footage of him escorting Herta Bothe which I only found a few months ago.
Thanks Des Lines

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: liberator@belsen.co.ukThank you Nick Price CreativesFacebookTwitter
