I can very well imagine the docile Belgians amongst the elite and otherwise collaborating and turning a blind eye. In the village in which I live they have had horrible experience of Belgians betraying Belgians, we are not talking about Jews here, but their own neighbors, the memories are so strong here that even now some people stay away from some parts of the village or some families that are known to have.... It is all examples of failed humane behaviour under stress. The bad pulls the worst in people. Can it happen again, possible, but one never looses hope for some progress...and this report is one such small step forward for this twisted society.
