Swiss doctors with the
Yugoslavian resistance
(1944-1948)
In 1944, the anti-fascist doctors
of the Centrale sanitaire
suisse joined the resistance
movement against the Nazi
occupants of Yugoslavia. With
scalpel in one hand and
kalachnikov in the other, they
were embarking on a perilous
mission: the Nazis werent
taking any prisoners.
This was the Swiss lefts riposte
to the Swiss colonel, Eugen
Bircher, who, with the help of
the banks and the Swiss branch
of the Red Cross, organized
four medical missions to
the Eastern front within the
framework of Hitlers crusade
against bolshevism.
The contribution of the
Centrale sanitaire suisse was
deeply appreciated, the
Yugoslavian doctors having
all either fled or been executed
by the Nazi and fascist
occupiers. Between 1944 and
1948, the Centrale undertook
four medical missions to
Yugoslavia, and hundreds of
thousands of Yugoslavs
would benefit from this solidarity.
Sixty years later, thanks to
this film, we can listen to
three of the Swiss doctors,
and to some of those they
treated, citizens of the former
Yugoslavia, as they recall
their experiences during that
time.
