Schweizer Frauen engagierten sich während des Zweiten Weltkriegs auf unterschiedliche Weise im Bereich der Flüchtlingshilfe. Sie kümmerten sich um die Flüchtlinge in der Schweiz, sammelten Geld und Naturalien oder suchten Freiplätze in Familien. Im Zentrum stehen die Handlungsmöglichkeiten der Frauenorganisationen in ihrer Hilfe für die jüdischen Flüchtlinge - zwischen Protest gegen die restriktive Flüchtlingspolitik und loyaler Zusammenarbeit mit den Behörden.Mit dem Bekanntwerden der Verfolgung der Jüdinnen und Juden mussten die Frauenvereine einerseits eine Haltung zur restriktiven schweizerischen Flüchtlingspolitik entwickeln, andererseits wurden sie verstärkt auch im Ausland tätig. Das Schweizerische Rote Kreuz entsandte Fürsorgerinnen in französische Internierungslager, die dort direkt mit der Deportation ihrer Schützlinge konfrontiert wurden. Einige Frauen halfen Flüchtlingen über die Grenzen und machten sich dadurch strafbar. Das Buch gibt einen Einblick in die vielfältige Flüchtlingshilfe von Schweizer Frauen und thematisiert die Ambivalenz des Helfens im Rahmen der behördlichen Vorgaben.

This open access book deals with contestations "from below" of legal policies and implementation practices in asylum and deportation. Consequently, it covers three types of mobilization: solidarity protests against the deportation of refused asylum seekers, refugee activism campaigning for residence rights and inclusion, and restrictive protests against the reception of asylum seekers. By applying both a longitudinal analysis of protest events and a series of in-depth case studies in three immigration countries, this edited volume provides comparative insights into these three types of movement in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland over a time span of twenty-five years. Embedded in concepts of political change, limited state sovereignty, and migration control, the findings shed light on actors, repertoires, and the effects of protest activities. The contributions illustrate how local contexts, national political settings, issue specifics, and social ties lead to distinctly different forms of protest emergence, dynamics, and strategies. Additionally, they give a profound understanding of the mechanisms and constellations that contribute to protest success, both in terms of preventing deportations of individuals as well as changing policies. In sum, this book constitutes a major contribution to empirically informed theoretical reflections on collective contestation in the fields of refugee studies and social protest movements.

Remembering Rosenstrasse

In February 1943 intermarried Germans gathered in Berlin's Rosenstrasse to protest the feared deportation of their Jewish spouses. This book examines the competing representations of the Rosenstrasse protest in contemporary Germany, demonstrating how cultural memories of this event are intertwined with each other and with concepts of identity. It analyses these shifting patterns of memory and what they reveal about the dynamics of the past-present relationship from the earliest post-unification period up to the present day. Interdisciplinary in its approach, the book provides insights into the historical debate surrounding the protest, accounts in popular history and biography, an analysis of von Trotta's 2003 film Rosenstraße , and an exploration of the multiple memorials to this historical event.The study reveals that the protest's remembrance is fraught with competing desires: to have a less encumbered engagement with this past and to retain a critical memory of the events that allows for a recognition of both heroism and accountability. It concludes that we are on the cusp of witnessing a new shift in remembering that reflects contemporary socio-political tensions with the resurgence of the far right, noting how this is already becoming visible in existing representations of the Rosenstrasse protest.

The World War II memoir, based on a Latvian girl's diaries, recounts experiences from her sunny childhood on the Baltic Sea to being catapulted into the turmoil of the Soviet and Nazi occupations. She is an eyewitness as people are deported in cattle cars to Siberia and Jewish children are marched to their graves by Hitler's SS men. Her childhood is engulfed in flames when her home and dreams turn to ashes and she becomes a refugee riding freight trains to Displaced Persons' camps in Austria. Disguised as gypsies, the family flees to the British Zone to escape deportation to Siberia. The unbiased account from a child's perspective relates how her family's faith, courage, love, and resiliency allows them to rise above despair, hunger, hard labor, and invading armies to start over again. With God as a traveling companion, their wanderings lead to a new homeland where new trials await. This is not the typical wartime story of bloodshed that leaves a damaged psyche. Though experiencing loss of home, friends and relatives, and the terror of bombings by three different military powers, the young refugee girl learns from her parents the difference between totalitarian regimes causing destruction in their quest for power and the innocent people engulfed in the melee regardless of their nationality. Living in trenches and caught in the line of fire by opposing armies brings realization that the young soldiers fighting each other on foreign soil are not born killers, but in their homeland are somebody's dear son, often willing to assist the civilians affected by the trauma of war. Armed with idealism that comes with youth and unaware of the threatening consequences of her actions, Skaidrite fights her own war against injustice by refusing to submit to the authority of her teachers when they issue orders contrary to her beliefs. On her way to school, the child within her is frightened when passing piles of human skulls unearthed during the construction of a bunker, but she is not afraid to tell her parents that a Soviet official has instructed her class to report if a parent says something against the government so that the parent could be properly 'educated'. Even a five-year-old could perceive the injustice of spying on her parents. When her class meets Hitler face to face during his whistle-stop visit in Austria, the young fighter for justice refuses to salute 'Heil Hitler' because his men killed Jewish children and he is not her Führer. Only a miracle saves her family from repercussions due to this protest. Skaidrite's private war comes to an end when she finds acceptance in the USA and at the University of Michigan.
