German soldiers at a border crossing between Switzerland and Germany chat with a Swiss border guard. Switzerland's neutrality during the war offered a quiet outlet to the Nazis, who took special advantage of the services of Swiss banks.

Swiss Air (1960): Gorgeous example of pure Swiss modernism, clean design and beautiful use of color. The play on the logotype forming a Swiss cross at its intersection is also clever.
