Vichy

List of French who collaborated with Nazis to be published online

After capitulating to the German Blitzkrieg in just over a month, and surrendering Paris without a fight in June 1940, France embarked on a period of collaboration with the Nazis.
The Vichy government not only helped exterminate Jews but murdered thousands of other “undesirables” including socialists, homosexuals and gypsies, and some Frenchmen joined the German army. Its soldiers were among those who fought for Hitler to the last, right up until the final Battle for Berlin.
