Storyline

As shown on TV, Nazi Collaborators explores the fascinating and often shocking tales of how individuals from all walks of life: the privileged; the political elite; 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 imperialist Germans offered the best chance of survival for their people, whilst others 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 usurp control of 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 Edition Box Set features all 13 episodes across 4 ...

Something not quite right
17 January 2014 | by jacksoncolumboSee all my reviews

There is a lot of contemporary film shown throughout the series but it very often does not match at all with the narrative. For example, throughout the series, we frequently see film of Hitler, I believe, plotting 'operation citadel' while the narrator discusses something entirely different. This is not art where all we need is 'a feel' for the period. If this is history, we need evidence. If the film wants to discuss Latvian auxiliary units, then use film, photographs, interviews or documents of that. Showing us 'stock footage' of German soldiers somewhere on the Eastern Front is not good enough. I know this may seem pedantic, but this is where things can get very confusing. It is quite wrong to have a narrator telling us about Latvian or Ukrainian nationalists fighting with the SS or of the same killing communist commissars but then have film which showing something quite, quite different. This is profoundly undermining for what could have been far better. The 'World at War' series created a very high standard which viewers could trust and treat as history. 'Nazi collaborators' severely handicaps itself with such a slapdash approach. I am afraid that it may not be long before the discrepancy of film/narration will be held up as evidence that the events being discussed did not happen.
