The Sign at Belsen Concentration Camp

Reg Price was part of 369 Battery, 113th Durham Light Infantry, RA. His task was to bury the dead.

Reg, a commercial signwriter, produced this famous sign (and a German text variant) this photo shows Reg and his sign. He added a monogram top right. It looks like an artists palette and two words – can anyone help, with a high res image, read what it said? Please get in touch, via this website, if you can help.

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
