In defiance of the instructions of the Swiss Federal Government, Paul Grüninger (1891-1972) saved in the years 1938 and 1939 several hundred Jewish and other refugees from Nazi persecution and extermination. In 1939 he was dismissed from St. Gallen government without notice. Grüninger was Swiss Police Captain and forged border papers to the advantage of Jewish and other refugees to enter Switzerland. 55 years after his trial and 23 years after his dead Grüniger was exonerated. Today the city of St.Gallen honored him with a street name.
Quite at the end of the video you can see and listen to Grüninger
“YES, I would do the same again today!”
A remarkable man!
