Évaluation critique du Rapport Bergier sur 'La Suisse et les réfugiés à l'époque du national-socialisme' et nouvelle analyse de la question (text in French)

  • Jean-Christian LAMBELET

The so-called second Bergier Report offers a wealth of information as well as some useful and valuable analytical insights, but it also suffers from a number of shortcomings and weaknesses, some of which are serious. No use is made of important facts, such as the high admittance chances of the refugees. The abundant numerical data remain mostly unexploited. The analysis is often repetitious and sometimes inconsistent. Many interpretations are farfetched. The general image of Switzerland's refugee policy it paints is difficult to reconcile with several central facts. Its severe judgments therefore seem to rest on fragile foundations. For all these reasons we propose, in a constructive spirit, a very different and, in part, a novel analysis of Switzerland's policy and practice vis-à-vis the refugees, an analysis which seems fully corroborated by the available information and numerical data.
