Abstract

For this project, I gathered information relating to the German occupation of Bulgaria, Serbia, and Greece during World War II. With the information which was gathered during the research process, I compiled case studies of the treatment of partisans in these occupied countries and related them not only to German colonialism in Africa, but also to modern counterinsurgency in Iraq and Afghanistan. Through an examination of these countries, I gained a better understanding of how the ideas of imperialism and racial policy shaped the behavior of Nazi occupation forces, and also how it has shaped even contemporary occupation forces.
