The global impact of Dürrenmatt’s ‘The Visit’

Pressed for money, Friedrich Dürrenmatt stopped all his other work and wrote the play "The Visit", which became an instant success. To this day, it's his biggest international hit. The story of a billionaire returning to her impoverished hometown, promising a fortune for the execution of her ex-lover, has been adapted on stages all over the world, as well as for film and Broadway. Its success shows that this tale of greed and morality remains relevant around the world today.

Have you ever seen "The Visit"? 👀

100 years ago today, Friedrich Dürrenmatt was born. Author, playright, painter, intellectual, provocateur, bon vivant, and much more. To this day, no other Swiss author’s work has been translated in more languages. To honor and get to know this great artist, we're dedicating the month of January to him.

Join us on this journey and learn more about Dürrenmatt’s plays, texts, paintings, and life!

Swiss apprenticeship system: history reveals secret to success

Combining theory and practice, apprenticeships are chosen by two thirds of school leavers in Switzerland and contribute to keeping youth unemployment low.

The system evolved over the years, and some 🇨🇭companies based in the 🇺🇸 have introduced Swiss-style apprenticeships at their U.S. locations, often pioneering vocational education and training programs in their region.

http://bit.ly/34TcEZY

A look in the archives of one company shows how modern Swiss vocational training became established – and how much has changed over the years.

Christmas and New Year traditions in Switzerland

The #holiday season may not look like it usually does -- but we want to share some of the magic and traditions that are usually celebrated around this time of the year in #Switzerland.🇨🇭❄🎄

December is full of magic, festivities and light – although every now and then something other-worldly can emerge. It is a time of year well known for its particularly abundant end-of-year celebrations, especially Christian traditions such as Saint Nicholas (Santa Claus) and Christmas.

He had the high-level skills necessary for the job but also a welcome flexibility, allowing him to thrive in the, well, pressure-cooker that is the White House.

Did you know #switzerland had a strong tradition for #design?

The 2020 edition of Design Days recently unveiled some of Switzerland's most promising designers, and Switzerland has often showed #innovation in the field.

Could you have guessed that these 8 items were created in Switzerland?

1. Toblerone, invented by Théodore Tobler and his sons in 1908 ("Toblerone" is actually a contraction between "Tobler" and "torrone", an Italian nougat confection)
2. USM Haller modular furniture, conceived by Swiss architect Fritz Haller
3. Freitag bags, created by Markus and Daniel Freitag
4. Rex vegetable peeler, created by Alfred Neweczerzal in 1947
5. The legendary Victorinox Swiss Army Knife
6. Helvetica, the font designed in 1957 by Zürich graphic designer Max Miedinger
7. Mondaine, the official clock in Swiss train stations
8. Landi chair, created by Hans Coray

Turning system takes the pressure off hospitals

A student ETH Zürich put his doctoral project aside to help relieve the strain on hospitals. He developed a system that makes it easier for nursing staff to rotate #COVID19 patients in intensive care.

During the lockdown last spring, Julian Ferchow put his doctoral project aside to help relieve the strain on hospitals. Together with his team, the 31-year-old researcher discovered a simpler way of turning patients suffering from COVID-19 in intensive care. A company is now producing the Proning Ta...
