Description - Switzerland and the Second World War by Georg Kreis
This collection of essays sheds light on the history of Switzerland during World War II, covering such topics as: trade; financial relations; gold; refugees; defence; and foreign relations. It also touches on official post-war measures to suppress the problematic aspects of Switzerland's involvement in the war. The work contributes to the debate that started in 1966 over the "dormant accounts" of Holocaust victims still held by Swiss banks. This issue has spread to include questions about: fugitive Nazi funds and the gold trade between the Swiss National Bank and the German Reichsbank; art dealing; insurance companies; participation in the "Aryanization" of Jewish companies in Germany; and slave labour.
