THE JEWISH NEWS

Geneva (JTA) — More than
25 years after the first peti-
tions were filed, a Swiss can-
ton has acquiesced and
rehabilitated a late police
chief who disobeyed
government orders and
helped thousands of Jewish
refugees escape to Switzer-
land from the Nazis.
In 1939, the Swiss borders
were shut after Adolph
Hitler annexed Austria in
1938. Thousands of Jewish
refugees trying to enter
Switzerland had to return to
Germany.
But Paul Gruninger, then
police chief of the canton of
St. Gallen, allowed the
alteration of refugees' pa-
pers to make it seem they
arrived in Switzerland
before the borders were clos-
ed.
For his efforts, Mr. Grun-
inger was fired in 1939 for
disobeying orders and was
denied a pension. He lived in
financial straits until his
death at the age of 80 in
1972.
Memorials to Mr. Grun-
inger exist in Israel and
Washington, and in 1991,
Jewish groups celebrated
the 100th anniversary of his
birth.
In Switzerland, however,
the story was different.
Attempts to secure his re-
habilitation, begun in 1968,
were repeatedly blocked.
Most recently, a group
calling itself Action by Chil-
dren of the Holocaust sub-
mitted a petition with 2,500
signatures to the authorities
of St. Gallen.
"Forty-eight years after
the end of World War II, the
government of St. Gallen,
with full knowledge of the
murderous apparatus put in
action by the Nazis, is still
unable to put humanity
above the non-observance of
orders. We as children of
Jewish concerned persons
cannot accept this," the peti-
tion read.
According to the petition,
Mr. Gruninger saved the
lives of 3,000 Jewish refu-
gees by allowing them to
enter Switzerland.
St. Gallen authorities said
in a statement, "Paul Grun-
inger is from today polit-
ically rehabilitated.
"We have come to the con-
clusion that Gruninger
knowingly ignored regula-
tions to save refugees who
were in mortal danger,
despite the serious personal
consequences," the canton
authorities said.
