The great-grandmother of Prince William spent her years during World War II saving a Jewish family from the Nazis’ clutches. An important part of Prince Williams visit to Israel was to pay his respects at the grave of his great-grandmother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, honored as “Righteous Among the Nations” and buried in Jerusalem. During World Ward II, the princess managed to deceive the Gestapo agents by using her congenital deafness to pretend that she didn’t understand what they were saying to her.
See how Tilde, Rachel and Freddy Cohen were saved by the selflessness and bravery of the Princess.
