A Swiss War Secret

The Exhibition Catalog

The cata­log accom­pany­ing the exhi­bi­ti­on of the same name tells the sto­ry of tho­se invol­ved in the tra­de in Latin Ame­ri­can pass­ports during World War II. Some were hel­pers, others were pro­fi­teers, and tog­e­ther, they pro­du­ced thousands of pass­ports for per­se­cu­t­ed Jews to escape or avoid being depor­ted to con­cen­tra­ti­on camps. The book also sheds light on the poli­ti­ci­ans who tried to stop the tra­de in pass­ports and dis­able the hel­pers’ network.
