How was the Holocaust possible?
The central role of Hitler and other Nazi Party leaders is indisputable. Less well understood is these perpetrators’ dependence on countless others. In countries across Europe, tens of thousands of ordinary people actively collaborated with German perpetrators of the Holocaust. Many more supported or tolerated the crimes.
The special exhibition Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration & Complicity in the Holocaust documented some very personal and candid accounts of survivors who experienced fraud, betrayal, and even good will during the Holocaust. (Source - USHMM)
