As a neutral country, Switzerland came out of World War II unharmed. Who are the Holocaust survivors in Switzerland? The vast majority were not Swiss citizens at the time. They came from the German Reich or other European countries; and as Jews, they were a direct target of Nazi persecution. Some survived concentration camps and extermination camps; others saved themselves by escaping or hiding. Most arrived in Switzerland after World War II. In 2017/18, Switzerland held the Chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. The exhibition The Last Swiss Holocaust Survivors gives a say to the last witnesses of the Holocaust and their descendants.
