No surprises in this story. Nope, it’s all according to script.
But wouldn’t it be nice if the Royals had declared, “It’s all a hoax. We know it’s a hoax. There was no final solution. Jews weren’t gassed. Six million is a myth.”
Don’t hold your breath for the conspiracy to be exposed by anyone in the Royal family. They like that plush lifestyle too much to ever say much that’s politically incorrect.
Prince William and Kate met survivors of the Stutthof camp in Poland, where 65,000 people were killed during the Second World War.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Holocaust survivors and visited a concentration camp on an emotional second day of their visit to Poland.
Prince William and Kate spent more than an hour at the Stutthoff camp, just outside of Gdansk, where 65,000 people were killed by the Nazis.
They toured the site, which is now a museum, meeting senior staff and signing a visitors book before being taken to a barracks and shown shoes left by Holocaust victims.
The couple left a message, saying: “We were intensely moved by our visit to Stutthof, which has been the scene of so much terrible pain, suffering and death.
“This shattering visit has reminded us of the horrendous murder of six million Jews, drawn from across the whole of Europe, who died in the abominable Holocaust.
“It is, too, a terrible reminder of the cost of war. And the fact that Poland alone lost millions of its people, who were the victims of a most brutal occupation.”
Afterwards, the Royal couple met survivors of the camp, including two Britons who were returning for the first time.
They listened while Zigi Shipper and Manfred Goldberg, both 87, led a prayer.
The survivors became lifelong friends after being detained aged 14 and rescued together in 1945. They later resettled in north London.
Mr Goldberg said before the visit that it would be a “seismic event” because, having never set foot in Germany or Poland since the camp’s liberation, “I decided that I really had to face the past”.
After the camp visit, the Royals travelled to Gdansk to join a street party, before going on a short tour of the city’s Shakespeare Theatre.
