9 children from Ukraine safe in the castle
Nine refugee children from Ukraine and their two foster mothers have found shelter at Hohenzollern Castle.

An interesting article in today's Sunday Times explores the relationship between Wilhelm of Prussia and Adolf Hitler. The Hohenzollern family is currently seeking compensation for palaces and lands lost to the Soviets at the end of WWII and it's stirred up a very German 'battle of the historians'.
