Stanley Cruse

Something that haunted my late Father very much near his life’s end in 2013.
Liberation of Bergen Belsen

Stanley Cruse said very little throughout my lifetime about entering Belsen with the 33rd Armoured Brigade RASC in April 1945.

He was a driver ferrying sanitisation supplies and one of the party of Bulldozer drivers at the tender age of 21.

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
