Non-German Antisemitism During the Holocaust

In countries occupied by the Nazis, various antisemitic beliefs and views were already prevalent. The Nazi ideology reinforced these views. The German presence with Nazi ideology, together with the already prevailing antisemitic outlook in the occupied countries, prompted many non-Germans to collaborate with Nazi policy. Many of the local populations remained indifferent to the persecution and the plight of the Jews. There were also those who, although they held antisemitic views, were repulsed by the murderous aspect of the Nazi policy and refused to cooperate with it. Nevertheless, at the same time, many murderous acts were perpetrated by non-Germans.
