Product Description

As shown on the Yesterday TV Channel, this part series 'Nazi Collaborators' explores the fascinating and often shocking tales of how individuals from all walks of life from the privileged and the political elite to ordinary working men turned against their nations and races to fight alongside the Nazis during World War 2. Many did it for financial gain, others for the promise of elevated status. Some believed that siding with the imperialist Germans offered the best chance of survival for their people, whilst others would later claim they would be killed if they refused. From the Jewish leader who offered up his people as free labour, to the ex-French Prime Minister who actively aided the Nazi hunt for the Resistance. And from the IRA-German plot to invade Northern Ireland to the brutal killing squads of Lithuania, this ground-breaking series explores the complex motivations behind the controversial paths these collaborators chose. Uncovering incredible personal stories, this Special Collector s Edition Box Set features all 13 episodes across 4 DVD Discs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fogotten history 24 Oct 2011
By Martin
This is a well researched and fascinating series. The less palatable aspects of occupation were understandably swept under the carpet after WWII; it is very easy from a safe distance to pour scorn on those who, like Marshal Petain worked with the Nazis and is credited with the creation of "Collaboration" in the sense we understand it. His supporters say this was done with the best interests of the French people at heart, but there are many who would violently disagree with this. I can well understand that this series will be uncomfortable viewing for many even today; there are some surprising fellow travellers within Hitlers Europe revealed here. Their actions still shape the world we live in, for example in the Balkans and the middle east.

There is much footage I've never seen before, presumably found in the film archives of the countries once overrun by Hitler's Germany. This was of course was unlikely to be given frequent showing due to the controversial and sometimes shameful content. The often harrowing interviews with survivors of the Nazi regime are riveting; in particular those with willing or unwilling collaborators make the cost of DVD set worthwhile alone. It comes as something of a shock to hear now very elderly men and women still speak with pride of their participation in Hitlers 1000 year Reich.

(I would like to give a mention here to Kevin Brownlow's remarkable film "It Happened Here", a fictional account of life in occupied Britain in 1945, now available on DVD It Happened Here [1964] [DVD. This film , amateur made in the 1960's but very convincing, explores the realities of living under foreign occupation from the viewpoint of a district nurse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid series 28 Aug 2011
This is an informative and interesting look at various individuals or groups who collaborated with the Nazis during World War 2. Each episode is around 50 minutes in length and provides a mixture of archive footage with interviews with survivors and historians.

The series in particularly interesting as it discusses individuals whose stories well-known but perhaps less well covered in film and television - men such as Viktors Arajs and Dinko Sakic (the episode on Jasenovac is a very valuable insight into a camp where cruelty and brutality were on such a scale that even the SS observers expressed concern). It also features some unusual, lesser-known footage.

The only small critism I can make is that occasionally the same footage is used repeatedly - for example, pictures of the Leipaja massacres - while talking about other massacres and pogroms. However, on the most part the films are enlightening and definitely worth a look if you have an interest in this area of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Documentary Series 6 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
This needs to be seen very interesting and important, i was very surprised by some of the information here very disturbing what people will do to one another given the right/wrong circumstance. Each disc contains self contained episodes recorded a specific collaborator from the IRA to the Finns it just goes to show the Nazis didnt archeive their goals on their own spine tingling stuff, least we forget!!! Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Nazi Collaborators 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase
It is probably no fault of the editors or producers of this series, certainly there are no deceptive advertising or descriptions, but I was a bit put off by the frequent return to the Holocaust. I thought it would have concentrated more on the military efforts of the 'puppet' and client states, which is only briefly covered in each episode. Each episode deals with a different country allied to the German cause.
However all that being said it is quite a good series for anyone interested in this aspect of the German war effort during the years 1939-45.
I especially found the episode on Leon Degrelle, the Belgian SS commander, who it seems was an incredibly brave and dedicated officer fighting on The Eastern Front and who rose from the (albeit artificial) rank of private to Standartenfuhrer during his service, quite interesting and illuminating.
(Degrelle was promoted beyond this rank by Himmler but as the latter had already been stripped of his high rank these promotions are not recognised.)
Another interesting episode is that dealing with the somewhat comical efforts of the Irish Republican Army to assist an invasion of England.
The suffering of Greece, which was continually stripped of its food supplies to feed both Germany and the Wehrmacht, causing the deaths of perhaps 500,000 people, was also quite illuminating for me at least.
All in all quite an intersting set of DVD's.

This is a very enjoyable series, mostly because it is inherently informative without being the usual 'sensationalist' in its manner.
