"Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust"

Sunday, February 16, 2020 (All day) to Sunday, March 8, 2020 (All day)

Millions of ordinary people witnessed the crimes of the Holocaust. "Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust," produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., explores how "neighbors"--workers, teenagers, policemen, religious leaders, business associates, teachers and friends--made individual choices that amounted to collaboration, complicity and, less frequently, resistance with regard to Nazi Germany’s persecution and murder of Jews.
