DFDXBFSXsAAolfe

On Day Two, The Duke and Duchess visited the former Nazi German Concentration Camp Stutthof, which is located in northern Poland. Stutthof was the first Nazi concentration camp set up in Poland in 1939, and was one of the last to be liberated in 1945. 110,000 people were imprisoned in Stutthof, 65,000 of whom died as a result of executions and horrendous living conditions.

Their Royal Highnesses then travelled to Gdansk town centre to experience a traditional Polish market – and a very big welcome.
