Abstract

Depicts daily existence in Nazi-occupied Belarus, with special attention to ordinary people – be they German servicemen or the indigenous inhabitants. Focuses on the situation and events in the General Commissariat White Ruthenia, which included territories annexed from Poland and the area around Minsk. Covers the organization of the genocide and survival strategies of Belarussian Jews, the wrangling for Jewish property, due to which Belorussians and Poles became involved in Nazi crimes, and the role of antisemitism, shared by both the partisans and the non-combatant population. The Belorussian authorities (installed by the Nazis), indigenous police, and organizations like the Belarussian People's Self-Help played a crucial role in the mass murder of the Jews: many Belorussians behaved like "Hitler's willing executioners".
