Closing Remarks

Resistanceto the Lal

Let us assume the following: Switzerland has become a battle- field. Superior enemy forces have invaded the country. Here and there our troops have been overrun. However, many have succeeded in evading the enemy. They are still in possession. of their weapons and equipment. They want to fight, resist to the last. But how?

Or: The enemy has occupied a city. The population is under his rule. What does the worker, the employee, the self-employed do in such a case? What does the teacher, the newspaper editor, the doctor, the state employee do? What about housewives, railroad employees, postal employees, and policemen?

What do the soldier do? Wht do the civilians do?
Will some throwaway
their weapons since they believe con-
tinued resistance is futile?
Will others wait for the future, placing their faith in God, or
will they cooperate with the enemy?
So manyquesrions-s-but where are the answers?

One thing is certain. The enemy will show no mercy. The enemy will snufl out one life, dozens, hundreds or thousands without any qualmsif this would further his aims. The captured soldier will face deportation, forced labor or death. But so will the worker, the em- ployee, the self-employed, and the housewife.

T h en em y
w illnot make ·any distinction betw en soldiers and

civilians. Experiences of the recent past have proved that annihila- tion of the conquered may be expected sooner or later. Sometimes, this process is only delayed.

The officer, the noncommissioned officer, the teacher, the editor-

each individual who, at one time or Mother, has made any deroga- tory remarks about the ideology of the enemy, who, before the war, stood up for democracy and liberty and vocally opposed dictatorship and despotism-all

these will lead the deportation
and liquidation
.list. This we must understand!

What then must be done when the enemy is in the country? W hat has to be done in view of the certainty that danger and death will threaten each citizen, male or female, regardless of whether he wants to play an active or passive role?

We believe it is better to resist until the last. We believe that every Swiss woman or man must resist. We believe that the enemy cannot be allowed to feel at ease for even one minute in the con- quered territory. We believe that we have toinflict damage upon him', fight him wherever and whenever we have the opportunity!By speaking this way we have clearly and explicitly indicated the pur- pose of this book.

In case of war, resistance will come primarily through the Army. It is our duty to make-sure with our might that the Army is and remains ready for war. We want this point understood very clearly.

However, we want to show our people a way to resist in case parts of the Army are dispersed, split up or encircled. This is in case prisoners succeed in escaping or portions of the civilian popula- tion fall under enemy rule. W e want to demonstrate that in the worst situation resistance is not in vain, but .that it is a primary duty.

W e feel this book will make this resistance effective, that it will prevent bloodshed andloss of life because of lack of necessary know- how and ability.

Perhaps one might say thatit is wrong and unwise to discuss these things publicly, to write about them and to inform a potential enemy of what we intend to do should he attack us. W e do not be- lieve in this concept. On the contrary, we believe that, because0'£ our openly demonstrated will to resist to the last, the enemy will have one more factor to consider when evaluating the 'pros' and 'cons' of a planned "Operation Switzerland."

.
We publish this book with this in mind and hope thatit w.ill
find thousands. of readers .
