Discussion in 'Prisoners of War, MIA, & Internees' started by Airwar, Feb 19, 2017.
what a load of Swiss propaganda --Luftwaffe internees were routinely allowed to come and go -- the Swiss treated the American and British worse then the Luftwaffe as POW's.
It was so bad, that several years ago, Congress allowed the Swiss internee's to claim POW status.

Hard to Get
Among 15AAF Escape statements there is lot of those from airmen who were interned in Switzerland.
This gives contemporary and detailed look into situation.
There were men in Switzerland who were openly pro-Nazi (even in mid 1944). But overall speaking they were in minority.
I have yet to read the initial article, but I don't think it mentions how Bob Morin's pilot, Stuart Goldsmith and his bombardier made their "escape" from the Swiss?
