The foundation wants to document the history of the fortifications in the canton of Schwyz and make them accessible to the general public. Defenders and residents have always tried to ward off hostile attacks. In Switzerland and Schwyz in particular, a large number of castles, forts and fortifications bear witness to this. Aggressors surrounded Switzerland during the Second World War and withdrew to its ‘Reduit’ , partly in Schwyz, and wanted to defend itself with all available means “sans esprit de retour”.
