Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie are in Poland this weekend. They were joined by Archbishop Jean-Claude Hollerich as well as a group of about 270 young people from Luxembourg, Mexico and Thailand who are on a pilgrimage together as part of the 2016 World Youth Day, which will be held in Krakow next week.
Together they visited the town of Lubiaz today to remember Luxembourgish citizens deported to Lubiaz by the Germans during World War II. Between September 1942 and January 1943, they worked as forced labourers at Lubiaz Abbey, at the time used as secret research laboratories and manufacturing facilities, before being brought to the concentration campns in Bobernstein and Hirschberg. Many of them did not survive and never returned to Luxembourg.
With their visit to Lubiaz, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie follow in the footsteps of Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte who did so in 1993. The Hereditary Grand Duke also is no stranger to World Youth Days. Together with his siblings and cousins he has been around the world for many of them in previous years.
More pictures likely soon on the website of the Catholic Church of Luxembourg.
