Did Hollywood Collaborate with Hitler?
Ben Urwand and Greil Marcus In his explosive new book, The Collaboration, Harvard Junior Fellow Ben Urwand argues that Hollywood studio moguls, many of whom were Jewish, actively collaborated with the Nazi regime, censoring and even quashing films that represented the Third Reich in a negative light in order to keep German theaters packed. Greil Marcus (Lipstick Traces, Mystery Train) joins Urwand for a conversation about the book, the intense debate it’s generated and the implication of moral culpability of Jews themselves.
