So called contract children, now adults, attend the initiative of seeking a restituition package in Bern December 19, 2014. A campaign seeking financial restitution for thousands of Swiss children, who were forced into foster families and used as cheap farming labour, has garnered the necessary support to force a national vote on the issue. Switzerland has been slow to come to terms with one of the darkest chapters in its history, when orphans and children from single-parent or poor homes were placed with farming families and used as cheap labour until they were of legal age.
