Summary of Season 1 (1972) - 1 disc

Directed by Marcel Ophüls, this Oscar-nominated documentary looks at life in Nazi-occupied France, shattering the fable of a unified and universal resistance movement under the Vichy regime in World War II. A tableau of archival footage, newsreels, clips from the anti-Semitic 1940 drama Jew Süss and an extensive assortment of interviews, the film paints an illuminating portrait of French complicity in the Holocaust.
