Des Alsaciens et des Lorrains réfugiés en Suisse (1940-1945)

Abstract : In the center of this book, the Alsatians and the Lorrainers, on the one hand, Switzerland, on the other hand. During the Second World War and after the Armistice of June 22, 1940, Alsace and the Moselle were annexed by the Third Reich in defiance of international rights. Men and women fled Nazi ideology and recruiting, labor service and incorporation. For reasons of proximity, a number of them headed for Switzerland. But other generations had taken this step before them, during the War of 1870/71 and the Great War. Based on these findings, this research takes a new turn: it is no longer just a question of describing the flight and the asylum request of these men and these women through their oral testimony and the numerous traces preserved in the archives. Other questions arise: that of the permanence or of the daily management of reception and internment, that of the relationships and tensions between the Alsatian or Lorraine refugees and Switzerland, also involved in History being written during this long period.
