Author Ben Urwand’s book The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler, uses documents uncovered in archives in both Germany and the U.S. to chronicle Hollywood’s dealings with Nazi Germany. The book is the result of nine years of scholarly investigation. In the book Urwand concludes that “Hollywood’s relationship with Nazi Germany was a real arrangement-an active collaboration.” Film contributor Milos Stehlik and Ben Urwand join us to discuss the book.
