"It has been a profoundly moving experience to visit Yad Vashem today ... But the actions of those few, who took great risks to help others, are a reminder of the human capacity for love and hope. I am honoured that my own great grandmother is one of these Righteous Among the Nations."
HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
Prince William was accompanied by Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev. He toured the Holocaust History Museum and met with Paul Alexander and Henry Foner, who were just young children when they managed to flee Nazi Germany as part of the Kindertransport.
He paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust during a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance and was deeply moved when he visited the Children’s Memorial.
