Collaboration horizontale


When first seeing films and pictures (around age 14), I had compassion for the accused women, mostly because of their embarrassment. My father, Army Air Corps, said the collaborating women were just doing what they could, to feed their families.

Or, maybe he said they should be shot. It was a long time ago.

Too, these pictures are from civilized France, Belgium and Holland. I have never seen a picture of what happened to collaborators from the Easern Front. But I have an idea their punishment was far greater than public humiliation and shaving of heads.
