Excerpt from Swiss Internment of Prisoners of War: An Experiment in International Humane Legislation and Administration
The internment of sick and wounded prisoners of war in neutral countries is an event without precedent in past his tory. It has been tried for the first time in Switzerland in the course of recent months.
Considering that the experience thus gained may prove of interest and perhaps of help in the United States, the Swiss Commission, at present in this country, has brought with it a hitherto unpublished official report on the subject. This report, by Hauser, the surgeon-general of the Swiss Army, who has been in charge of the internment in Switzerland of Austrian, Belgian, English, French, and German prisoners of war, tells the story of this great experience from its origin until the end of January, 1917.
