Barry Mills has offered the Auschwitz Museum "anything they ask"
A Gloucestershire sign-maker who "couldn't afford" to give financially to Auschwitz is making free signs for the former Nazi death camp instead.
Barry Miles, who has worked at Hanman Split in Quedgeley for over 20 years, was so moved by a visit to the cash-strapped museum he decided to help.
He had the idea that if they required signs he "might be able to donate that way and save them some money".
The museum needs over £100m to preserve the site's crumbling buildings.
"They did actually take a lot of persuading that it was a genuine offer," said Mr Mills.
"First of all we sent a trial sign, and they loved it, and then we sent three or four more and the last batch contained 45."
The signs made in Quedgeley provide visitor information
Some of the signs made at the Quedgeley base offer information on donating to Auschwitz and others warn members of the public that certain barracks are closed because of their poor condition.
Mr Mills believes it is vital to keep the camp in a good condition "to act as a memorial to the people that died and suffered there and also as a warning to future generations".
He is willing to increase the amount of signs donated and has offered the Auschwitz Museum "anything they ask".
