WW II - Who did Switzerland Prefer?

Switzerland was neutral in WW II. The movies might have believe you to believe the citizens were more sympathetic to the Allies. If there had been a secret election to decide, which way do you believe Switzerland would have chosen?

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: They would have remained neutral. It was also important for the Nazis to have a nearby location where their gold reserves and wealth could be stored much more safely.Switzerland also a long history of neutrality and multiculturism. There was during the war a referendum on whether they should go with Germany and this failed miserably. Most Swiss even back then were liberal at thought. Also, they probably were the only nation that could militarily deter Hitler [considering they are allowed to carry guns in their homes]
