Interviewing Evacuees

Were you, or someone you know, evacuated to Switzerland?
Share your story today.

Let’s get in touch

We are eager to hear from any former children, and their families, who were sent to Switzerland between 1940 and 1949. What was it like to be a child in these evacuations? What impact did they have? And how did language help or hinder?

Share your experiences with us to become part of the history of these evacuations.

“My stay in Switzerland changed my life… I wouldn’t be who I am today without the summer I spent there.”
