War Diaries - Part IV

How many faces does war have? How many faces do its particular aspects have? In the latest episode of “War Diaries”, we are going to focus on the word “occupation”. As it turns out, one must not treat occupation in different parts of Europe during the Second World War in the same way. We tend to use the word “occupation” somewhat thoughtlessly, but it often results in bending the image of the war. For instance, it is utterly incorrect to see occupied Austria through the same prism as occupied France. Let us remember that a large number of Austrian citizens supported the Nazi rule and the process of annexation actually occurred quite naturally. In the case of France, the situation was just the opposite. If you wish to elaborate on the topic, make sure to watch the fourth episode of “War Diaries” in which we comprehensively explain the situation of occupied European states during the Second World War.
