Missions chez Tito
Les missions de la centrale sanitaire suisse en Yougoslavie 1944-48
In 1944, the anti-fascist doctors of the Centrale sanitaire suisse joined the resistance movement against the Nazi occupants of Yugoslavia. With scalpel in one hand and kalachnikov in the other, they were embarking on a perilous mission: the Nazis weren’t taking any prisoners. This was the Swiss left’s riposte to the Swiss colonel, Eugen Bircher, who, with the help of the banks and the Swiss branch of the Red Cross, organized four medical missions to the Eastern front within the framework of Hitler’s crusade against “bolshevism”. The contribution of the Centrale sanitaire suisse was deeply appreciated, the Yugoslavian doctors having all either fled or been executed by the Nazi and fascist occupiers. Between 1944 and 1948, the Centrale undertook four medical missions to Yugoslavia, and hundreds of thousands of Yugoslavs would benefit from this solidarity. Sixty years later, thanks to this film, we can listen to three of the “Swiss doctors”, and to some of those they treated, citizens of the former Yugoslavia, as they recall their experiences during that time.
