The recent passing of Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth’s husband for more than seven decades, has brought renewed attention to his late mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg (Feb. 25, 1885 – 5 Dec. 5, 1969). Princess Alice is one of the Righteous among the Nations, non-Jews honored by Israel for saving Jews during the Second World War at great risk to their own lives. Her remains are buried in Jerusalem.

Quote: “ ‘What Princess Alice did, she saved the whole family,’ said Evy Cohen, whose grandmother, aunt, and uncle hid in the royal’s residence in Athens during the Nazi occupation of Greece. ‘Clearly I wouldn’t be alive, I wouldn’t be here, I wouldn’t be born if it hadn’t been for her.’ The vast majority of Greece’s approximately 80,000 Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.”
