Hitler-friendly Hollywood served Nazi interests: Great American movie studios collaborated with Third Reich, explosive new book claims

Harvard post-doctoral fellow Ben Urwand’s controversial book,“The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler,” reveals how Nazi diplomats threatened to ban American-made movies from the German market if they didn’t follow orders. One studio exec even divorced his Jewish wife.

Spineless Hollywood executives wilted to Nazi demands in the leadup to World War II, scrubbing Jewish traces from films as they axed scenes and entire projects the regime found remotely objectionable, according to a Harvard film scholar’s new book.

One MGM executive in Germany even bowed to a propaganda ministry request to divorce his Jewish wife, dooming her to life in a concentration camp.
