Without Swiss bankers, WWII would have ended much earlier and hundreds of thousands of human beings would have survived. The Swiss bankers made millions of Francs available to Hitler's war machine, allowing him to buy the strategic raw materials the Nazis needed. While this was going on, the Swiss govt. expelled thousands of Jewisg refugees, sometimes delivering them directly to the SS murderers. Swiss bankers laundered the gold pillaged by the SS in occupied countries. The Swiss govt.'s pardoning of its citizens for helping Jews during WWII is cynical nonsense. These righteous people deserve public praise for their humane behaviour. Please read Prof. Jean Ziegler's book "La Suisse, l'or et les morts" i.e. Switzerland,the gold and the dead.
