BERLIN (JTA) -- Prince Harry of Great Britain visited the Holocaust memorial and museum while in Berlin for a children's charity benefit.

Harry, who is third in line to the British throne, told reporters he had wanted to keep the weekend visit private. He walked through the memorial, a field of 2711 cement stele, and visited the underground information center, where he was accompanied by museum staff.

The prince also visited a memorial to those who died while trying to cross from the former East Germany to the west.

The charity, A Heart for Children, presented Harry with a Golden Heart award for his role in establishing the nonprofit Sentebale Foundation in memory of his mother, the late Princess Diana.

In January 2005, Harry officially apologized for wearing a costume with a swastika armband to a friend's party.
