This is an article I've worked on translating rather choppily:
Tragedy of one prince: from Rome to Buchenwald
Mafalda di Savoia was the daughter of Queen Elena and Vittorio Emanuele of Italy. Characterially she was the happiest of the siblings, a trait that the Queen used to say made Mafalda is the only one that succeeding in making the king laugh. On 23 September 1925 Mafalda married German Prince Philip of Hesse, a marriage which would result in four sons. Mafalda had a sensitive spirit and nurtured the greatest affection amongst the siblings. In fact at the end of August 1943 she left for Sofia hoping to be of assistance to her sister Giovanna who husband, King Boris of Bulgaria, was seriously sick.
[This part I didn't really understand: Still in Mafalda travel he comes informed of the dead women of the brother-in-law: reason more in order to catch up the sister and to support it.]
In fact, at the moment of her departure , in Rome the political and military situation is delicate and informed of the dangers, the King has not spoken about the negotiations for an armistice, perhaps in fear that Mafalda could inform her husband. [A Nazi officer] current and of the effective dangers; the king has not spoken to them about the negotiations in course for the armistice, perhaps for the fear that Mafalda can inform of the husband. After the funerals, Mafalda decides to leave Sofia and to return to Rome; to Pescara she [had trouble translating: comes to know that the parents and the Umberto brother are sail to you from Ortona, without to inform it.]
Mafalda continues her travel towards Rome, by now occupied by the Germans; her sons are in the care of her sister Elena and Mafalda can't abandon them (in truth due to the intervention of Queen Elena, 3 of the sons are in the safety of the Vatican). Once to Rome, the princess meets her sons and gives news of her arrival to the German embassy. Mafalda is confident of being able to rely on the attendance of the embassy because she is a German citizen due to her marriage. This circumstance, instead, turns out to her detriment. Col. Kappler attracts Mafalda, on Sept 22, to the embassy with the excuse of one telephone call from her husband. Once she's there, Kappler has her arrested. Her arrest Mafalda is a gesture of revenge on Hitler's part:the führer felt he had been betrayed by those who signed the armistice and had escaped to the south. (Only a few dyasa before the armistice, Vittorio Emanuele assured Hitler of his determination to maintain the Rome-Berlin axis). Mafalda is transferred first to Monarco, then to Berlin and, finally, deported in the concentration camp of Buchenwald. In the concentration camp Mafalda occupies, along with a social democratic former-minister, a shack on the margins of the field. It is an area where particular prisoners are interned. You cannot keep your identity there so a false one is assigned to Mafalda: Frau von Weber. The field of Buchenwald endures a single strafing on 24 August 1944. The shack occupied by the princess is hit, destroying it. Medical aid is not prompt; when the princess is extracted from the ruins she has a wound on the cheek and the left arm, that completely paralyzes her arm. The first medication is one simple suturing. After four days she is seriously ill and the doctors of the SS decide to operate : the surgeon executes one operation taking advantage of general anesthesia. Mafalda is too weak to strongly support such anesthesia and loss of blood .The opinion of the doctor, Pecorari, an interned radiologist at Buchenwald, is that Mafalda's operation had been intentionally delayed. He feels the procedure was executed well but was unjustifiable given the condition of the patient and done in order to prolong her suffering. The method of the exsanguination during long operations already had been applied at Buchenwald, and was executed by the SS on other persons which it was desired to rid itself of. In post-operative the health condition and environment are nearly non-existent. Mafalda dies just a few hours after the operation. Due to the intercessions of the Pope, her body is removed to Weimar in the unit of classified honor to the dead men for war causes. In the registry, Mafalda, becomes annotated "disowned woman".
