“And of course he says hello … it’s nice to see you again.”
Manfred said to the Duchess: “You may remember that Zigi and I met in the camps in 1944.
“By chance we met again later and are still friends today.”
During the call, Kate, along with Zigi and Manfred, emphasized the importance of educating young people about the Holocaust.
As little boys, Zigi and Manfred spent time in ghettos and a number of labor and concentration camps.
However, they met for the first time in Stutthof in 1944.
Meanwhile, Kate remembered the first time she met Zigi and Manfred in 2017.
She said: “Manfred and Zigi, I never forgot the first time we met in 2017 and your stories have stayed with me ever since.
“It was a pleasure to see you again today, and you are right Manfred. It is important that these stories are passed on to the next generation.”
Along with other survivors, Zigi and Manfred often share their stories with young people across the country through the Holocaust Educational Trust’s outreach program.
Royal fans shared their thoughts on Kate’s call with Zigi and Manfred on Instagram.
One person commented: “The Duchess is an incredible woman, mother and future queen.
“We are fortunate to have her and seeing her interact with these brave men is very inspiring.”
