Around 30,000 Jewish refugees during World War II found refuge in Switzerland. Thousands of Jewish men, women and children were ruthless dismissed. For most, this meant certain death. This documentation was made by the Swiss Television in 1994 – a highly interesting report!
You will see a “J”-stamped German passport in detail including background information with related documents. In the movie it is said that Switzerland was asking Germany to mark the passports of German Jews but Switzerland was NOT the inventor of the “J”-stamp as we know by evidence nowadays!
Heinrich Rothmund, Chief of the Swiss Police was asking the Germans for an example how the “mark” would look like – and he became a passport with a big red J! (video at position 9:28) However you hear a statement from a researcher that the Swiss Immigration documents were asking for the “race” of foreigners at that time.
See and listen to the story of 14 school girls which wrote a letter to the Swiss Government NOT to dismiss the refugees. There are exact statistics made by the Swiss Border Police how many Jews were dismissed every month.
This is the first video related to this Swiss-Jewish topic. 2 more will follow.
