ORT Archive documents relating to Switzerland.

ORT Switzerland began by training refugees and Holocaust Survivors (1943-1949). As well as fundraising for ORT activities, it hosted the ORT Anières Central Institute (1947-1997). The ORT online archive holds documents relating to two strands of ORT activities in Switzerland - programmes for refugees in the 1940s and ORT Anieres. More information on activities in Switzerland can be found in the 1946-1996 reports submitted to World ORT's governing bodies and in the World ORT Report (formerly the ORT Yearbook). These can be found under World ORT. Our photo galleries include more from ORT Switzerland and a brief history of ORT's activities in the country is available here.
