Switzerland and refugees in the Nazi era by Unabhängige Expertenkommission Schweiz--Zweiter Weltkrieg( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in German and English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surveys Swiss refugee policy between 1933-45, focusing on the consequences of this policy for the persons concerned. In 1938 Switzerland decided to mark the passports of German Jews with a "J", making it difficult and sometimes impossible for them to travel to other countries as well. Examines why Switzerland closed its borders to Jews in summer 1942, in spite of its knowledge that rejected refugees faced the threat of deportation and death. Argues that the rejection of Jewish refugees was motivated by a widespread antisemitic attitude, which had cultural, social, and political foundations; it was linked to Christian hatred of Jews and embedded in a policy which had been fighting "Überfremdung", and in particular "Verjudung", since World War I. Notes that many private persons and organizations helped refugees cross the border and go into the interior of the country, from where they were generally not evicted. Switzerland admitted ca. 51,000 refugees during the war, ca. 20,000 of whom were Jews. The refugees were supported mainly by Jewish organizations until 1942

"In the course of 1996, the behaviour of Switzerland during the National Socialist regime and World War II became the subject of harsh criticism. The small neutral state appeared as an amoral war profiteer and a hub for covert operations conducted by the Nazis. In the glaring light of the international media, the unsolved problems of restitution of the years 1933 through 1945 were discussed. Dealings in looted gold along with the issues of dormant bank accounts and stolen cultural assets stood in the spotlight of a debate on the mysterious whereabouts of the assets of victims of persecution and extermination. In this situation, at the end of 1996 the Swiss Parliament and Government set up an internationally composed Independent Commission of Experts whose five-year assignment was to investigate these allegations in their historical and legal context. Thanks to the unique privilege of assess to archives, it was possible for the first time to overcome the obstacle of Swiss banking secrecy - believed insurmountable until then - and to extend the research to the archives of banks and other companies. Against this background, a multifaceted picture of the challenges of those dark years emerges, challenges which Switzerland met with varying degrees of success. The investigations provide an illustration of the constraints of national survival placed on a country with not only strong economic, but also close cultural lies to the international community. It becomes clear how tightly national security policy and business interests were intertwined. Complex issues concerning the restitution of stolen property are analyzed from a political and legal perspective. The individual fate of the refugees and of those persecuted, as well as the interests of the victims, are intentionally and constantly placed in the foreground. The answers found have expanded the horizon of knowledge and understanding of the position and policies of neutral Switzerland in the Nazi era, and are intended as a contribution to the urgently needed debate on the historical portrayal of Switzerland"--Jacket."

Die Flüchtlings- und Aussenwirtschaftspolitik der Schweiz im Kontext der öffentlichen politischen Kommunikation 1938-1950 by Kurt Imhof( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in German and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzes reports on immigration policy (1938-47) and foreign trade policy, based on the coverage of leading daily newspapers in the three language regions of Switzerland. The topic of refugees was rarely discussed as a problem; all political circles considered Switzerland a "transit country", spurred by fears that the nature of the country might be changed by the presence of too many strangers. People who were allowed to enter the country were mostly those whose return to their homes was certain, such as refugee children or children on vacation. The fact that most of the refugees were Jews was explicitly mentioned only in French-speaking Switzerland and not in German-speaking areas. Equally rare, at least until 1942, was a substantial linking of the coverage of refugees with the continuous coverage on their persecution by the Nazi regime; articles about refugees largely omitted the reasons for their flight. Pp. 437-496, by Georg Kreis, discuss censorship concerning immigration policy and foreign trade policy

Transit ferroviaire à travers la Suisse (1939-1945) by Gilles Forster( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette étude analyse le transit ferroviaire à travers la Suisse durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. La situation économique de l'Italie, ses échanges commerciaux avec l'Allemagne, le transport du matériel militaire et des biens nécessaires à la conduite de la guerre constituent le cadre de l'étude. Celle-ci aborde plusieurs aspects : l'histoire du transit dans la longue durée et ses conditions techniques et juridiques ; les personnes transportées : y eut-il des trains de déportés, de travailleurs forcés? Les marchandises : lesquelles et en quelles quantité? Leur importance dans l'économie de guerre des pays de l'Axe et les interventions des Alliés à ce sujet. Quelle a été la politique suisse, celle des autorités et celle des compagnies ferroviaires, à l'égard d'un trafic intense, parfois suspect? L'étude répond à ces questions, sur la base d'archives peu exploitées jusqu'ici
