This is an in-depth study of the ethnic German minority in the
Serbian Banat (Southeast Europe) and its experiences under German
occupation in World War II. Mirna Zakic argues that the Banat
Germans exercised great agency within the constraints imposed on
them by Nazi ideology, with its expectations that ethnic Germans
would collaborate with the invading Nazis. The book examines the
incentives that the Nazis offered to collaboration and social
dynamics within the Banat German community - between their Nazified
leadership and the rank and file - as well as the various and
ever-more damning forms collaboration took. The Banat Germans
provided administrative and economic aid to the Nazi war effort,
and took part in Nazi military operations in Yugoslav lands, the
Holocaust and Aryanization. They ruled the Banat on the Nazis'
behalf between 1941 and 1944, yet their wartime choices led
ultimately to their disenfranchisement and persecution following
the Nazis' defeat.
