The history of Switzerland during the Second World War is to this day the subject of debates and research. Historical sources in the Swiss Federal Archives provide a basis for both.

Controversial refugee policy, treatment of military internees, refugee money, loot, dormant assets and wartime economy: the history of Switzerland during the Second World War remains a subject of current debate and a field of historic research. Issues of compensation and reparation often play a major role. Numerous important fonds held by the Swiss Federal Archives can serve as a foundation for this process.
