The chapter focuses on the attitudes of the local population during the Holocaust in the borderlands. Although the German invasion provided the over‐all institutional and psychological framework for the genocide, it was the actions of the local collaborators that contributed to its totality. Local volunteers constituted a fraction of the populations in which they lived, but their involvement cut across social status, educational level, creed, and age and entailed a variety of motives, from ideological motivation to greed and sadism.
