Persecutors and Murderers

The success of Nazi Germany's military and antisemitic campaign incited many non-German antisemites to action. The non-German administrations in countries occupied or influenced by Germany, tried to enact anti-Jewish legislation inspired by the Nuremberg Laws. Large numbers of Jews were betrayed and even murdered by their neighbors. The state apparatus in many of Germany's satellites and allies helped the Germans, at least to some extent, in carrying out their policy of discrimination and murder. In some cases they even initiated similar actions themselves. Furthermore, the Germans, especially in Eastern Europe, established numerous units comprising of local populations who took an active part in murdering Jews.
