Serbia Honors Hitler’s Ally Pavle Karadjordjevic

Hundreds of mourners gathered on Saturday for the reburial of Serbian Prince Pavle Karadjordjevic, his wife and son, decades after their deaths in exile. Following exhumation from a cemetery in Switzerland last month, the three coffins draped in Serbian flags and escorted by Serb Army Guards were transferred to the Oplenac royal chapel in the southwestern town of Topola in Serbia. President Tomislav Nikolic and Serb Orthodox clergy prayed over the coffins of the former Serbian Nazi collaborator. Prince Karadjordjevic had allied with Nazi Germany, Italy and Japan in 1941 but was soon toppled by his officers. He spent most of World War Two under British house arrest in Kenya.
