Dr. Ed Gordon – Hitler\’s Willing Collaborators

March 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

\"GordonEdward\"   \"Collaborators

Since the Second World War, the names Quisling and Leval have become synonymous with the word \”traitor.\” Yet during the 1930s many right-wing fanatics across the European continent participated in Nazi political movements. Even in the United States, the German-American bund supported Adolf Hitler\’s goals and policies. In 1939 at the beginning of World War Two, Pan-Nazi parties were willing collaborators in the Nazi occupation of Europe. Over the course of the war, 1.5 million non-Germans volunteered to fight in Wehrmacht or SS military units. Many were from Nazi-occupied countries including France, Norway, Finland, Holland, Belgium, and Italy. Others were from Eastern European nations such as Estonia, Latvia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Ukraine, and areas of Russia. From outside Europe came soldiers from Korea, Japan, and different regions of Africa. Presenter – Dr. Edward Gordon
