"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."
