The lower house of the Swiss Parliament voted 25-3 to recommend that Holocaust projects be excluded from receiving moneys from a humanitarian fund meant to aid victims of catastrophes. Last week’s vote is not binding, but it indicates the growing anger among Swiss leaders over the bitter dispute between their country and Jewish groups abroad. The Parliament is expected to vote later this year on creating the foundation, after which it will be subject to a national referendum, which may be held in the year 2000.
