Prince Claus of the Netherlands

The only son among the seven children of an aristocratic family, Claus was born in Dotzingen, northern Germany, and educated, initially, in Tanzania, where his family moved, when he was two, to manage their sisal plantation. He returned to boarding school in Germany in 1938, shortly after Hitler had appointed himself war minister and the anti-Jewish pogroms had begun.
