Complicity and Collaboration: Definitions, Distinctions, and Debate
Although the term "collaborator" has served to draw a boundary between Nazi perpetrators and those who assisted them, the situation on the ground was far more complex. Participants in this workshop examine a variety of groups of understudied collaborators and perpetrators in order to shed new light on the forms of collaboration and complicity with the Nazi genocidal project, as well as the postwar consequences for individuals and societies.
