Your response is reflexive and typical and yes, some of the French were indeed active collaborators. The Vichy administration were active agants for the Nazis in enforcing their racist policies and deportations. The French police also played a role. But remember, the majority was neither collaborators or resistance. They were an intimidated people who didnt want to know and just go about their lives. 75,000 Jews were deported and only a small number of them returnd to France after the War. But what was the Jewish population of France at the time of the Nazi occupation? 350,000. So, you can see that more Jews were saved or helped in some way by their neighbours than were deported and you must remember that when you condemn those who assisted the nazi beast in their barbarism.
