Queen Silvia has to be in good shape on Saturday (hopefully!) She is going to be awarded saturday with the honorary "Ein Herz für Kinder" award called "Honorary heart". The Bild (german newspaper) - to which Ein Herz für Kinder is related - reports that this is a new price and she is the first person ever to receive. In 2003 she already got Das Goldene Herz (golden heart) ... and now for her achievement for children in need.

I didn´t know that. Confused But now I know why BILD didn´t report anything about Snakey´s past...

Bild belongs to the Springer Verlag - the charity event is hosted by Elfriede (?) Springer. So at the end of November Bild starts to publish a lot of articles about sick kids and kids got healthy again, etc. Btw. this year's golden heart goes to Harry Belafonte ;-)
I really hope Queen Silvia can make it to come ... would love to hear more about her work in german live-television. She really achieved a lot!

It would have been more honest if she had given a short statement and said "Sorry. I am mortified that my dad was involved with the Nazis". Or something like that. But that is the German mentality. They stayed quiet about it ... and they covered up.



I think much worse is that her father himself lied about his connections with the Nazis. He denied everything (but later was proved) - IMO he lied his children too. Therefore maybe Silvia wasn`t sure about... and wanted to trust her father more than others...
Statement would be fine but I am not sure if e.g. Maxima had given one too  Thinking

And, last but not least, Swedish RF (some of the members) had close relationship to Nazis too (Gustav V. for example), not to mention Swedish iron export to Germany during II. WW... So, why to get excited about her father?


Even after Silvia had all the evidence of her father's history, she tried to whitewash it.
She made it sound like her father had done something brave and saved the life of a jewish factory owner who sold his company in Berlin and moved to Brazil. In reality, Sommerlath took advantage of the situation, when the nazis forced jews to sell their companies. He paid the man, Efim Wechsel, a lot less than the company was worth and Wechsel probably took the lousy deal just to get out alive with his family.
But Silvia tried to make daddy dearest sound like some Oscar Schindler. I don't think that anybody who isn't on the payroll of the court pretend that they believe what she is saying.

I agree completely with you and Miss Marple. As it turns out, Silvia's father was like the art dealers in the nazi era, buying up art collections from jewish germans who had no choice but sell their art for a fraction of its value and save their lives and get out of germany. In my and the international court's opinion, this is the equivalent of theft. Silvia's father was a thief, in other words. Sure it's not her fault at all but she does need to acknowledge it, not lie about it. If she's lying about this, what else is she lying about? My point is, I agree, this just comes across as not very sympathetic on Silvia's part, to say the least.

Apparently Silvia payed a secret visit to my home province.  Tongue She spent one night at a hotel near Freiburg/Breisgau to visit her aunt, uncle and cousin. I lived near/in Freiburg the first 26 years of my life, I never knew she has relatives there. Confused

Looking forward to pictures of the visit to Rome.  Sil, Madde, Chris & Leo visiting would be good press for SRF, given the ridiculousness that's coming up in the next two months.

Here is a quote Silvia said in 2000 regarding Victoria's eating disorder:

“It was a shock for me when I found out about [Victoria’s anorexia]. I have often asked myself what I did wrong and what the causes of the disease were, but I found no answer. Nevertheless I blame myself”

Does she mean she didn't notice Victoria losing weight? or that they discovered she had disordered eating habits very early, before she had lost a noticeable amount of weight? I'm a little confused by her statement  Confused

Sometimes it is hard to notice the things which happen directly under your own eyes or nose...........
And based on what I have heard and experienced myself most anorexia (or other eating disorders) patients are really good in disguising their bad habits. In some cases only noticed when they are really skinny, their bad breath or other typical signs.

Years ago she gave an interview how she restricted bad food in her house etc. I remember because my mom was totally found of that. And it sounded a bit ... strict and obsessed.

Gracie: if you look at the first page on this thread My13 writes about how strict Silvia was with that there should only be served lowfat food, and how she always was onto Victoria on keeping herself thin, and also herself. to grow up with a parent or both parents just who is so into controlling body wight I beleive can truly cause eating disorders. Silvia also said about American people that they are too fat at visit to US.
