||"As long as Nazi violence was unleashed only, or mainly,
against the Jews, the rest of the world looked on passively
and even treaties and agreements were made with the patently
criminal government of the Third Reich.... The doors of Palestine
were closed to Jewish immigrants, and no country could be found
that would admit those forsaken people. They were left to perish
like their brothers and sisters in the occupied countries. We
shall never forget the heroic efforts of the small countries,
of the Scandinavian, the Dutch, the Swiss nations, and of individuals
in the occupied part of Europe who did all in their power to
protect Jewish lives."
