Neo-nazis Recruiting the Swiss

Download PDF for this date

A group of German neo-Nazis is trying to recruit like minded persons in Switzerland.

According to a Swiss radio report, their initial target is Germans living in Switzerland. Letters have been sent to hundreds, asking them to join the movement.

So far, the only serious Swiss neo-Nazi organization is based in Lausanne. It is headed by Francois Genoud, a banker.

The Swiss authorities say they can take no action against it, because Switzerland has no laws specifically prohibiting racist activities.
