Swiss Tolerance Hailed by French Premier

Download PDF for this date

Switzerland’s freedom from racial and religious Bigotry was warmly praised here today by Premier Edouard Daladier as an example for all Europe to follow. Franco-Swiss friendship was the keynote of the luncheon given by the Union of Provincial Newspapers for Walter Stucki, Berne’s Minister to Paris, and the Swiss colony.

Daladier declared: “We have only one plan in France — that your country continue to live in this harmony, that it be in the heart of Europe a living example, a moving protest against those who subordinate humanitarian principles to racial and religious hatreds, whereas the goal of modern civilizations should be to reconcile all races and religions.”
