A mass exodus of women, without parallel in the history of Switzerland. They worked as housekeepers, nannies and companions. The historical aspects of the extensive repatriation initiatives, organized by the Swiss Embassy in London in October 1939, are also described. Readings in German, followed by Q&A in English.
