Prince William, Kate visit WWII camp

Poland Britain Royals

GDANSK, Poland — Britain’s Prince William and his wife Kate were guided by two Holocaust survivors around the site of a former Nazi German concentration camp in Poland on Tuesday and then visited the historic city of Gdansk.

The royal couple is on a goodwill trip to Poland and Germany aimed at underscoring Britain’s intention to maintain friendly relations with the European Union after it leaves the bloc.

They flew to northern Poland on Tuesday from Warsaw, where they and their children were staying at the Belvedere Palace.

At the Stutthof museum they were guided by two survivors of the camp, Manfred Goldberg and Zigi Shipper, both 87, from north London. The royals were shown discarded shoes, clothing and other personal items that were seized from the inmates on arrival at Stutthof. They were also shown the gas chamber where those too sick to work were killed.
