Bloodlands : Europe between Hitler & Stalin - Timothy Snyder
tFourteen millions people were killed by totalitarian regimes in the countries between Hitler and Stalin from 1933 to 1945. This work reveals a polemic analogy between the Europe from Hitler, the National Socialism and the Europe influenced by Stalin, the collectivization. Through this work, Timothy Snyder reveals the main taboos which haunt the modern Europe. The main issue which results from this research could be the following:
How can we compare so huge mass-killing? But overall who recognizes this and which debate results it from this mass killing.
Which future could be expected for central Europe, a shared-bloc between the collectivization
[...] Through this work, Timothy Snyder reveals the main taboos which haunt the modern Europe. The main issue which results from this research could be the following: How can we compare so huge mass-killing? But overall who recognizes this and which debate results it from this mass killing. Which future could be expected for central Europe, a shared-bloc between the collectivization and the fascism? 1 – The issue of mass killing in Soviet Union: Ukrainian Starvation The first underlined point was the Ukrainian famine which generated the phenomena of cannibalism.

[...] Conclusion During this long period from the 2nd World War, Bloodslands were isolated, divided and shared between two ideologies which were both more or less refused. And one culture was mostly exterminated. The today's issue is the reconstruction of theses Bloodlands which lost the right to be human, just to live. From a Western Europe point of view, it's really interesting and testing to read the history, le life experienced by people who lived in Bloodlands. Indeed, this part of history in Soviet Union is less known than the Hitlerian mass killing. [...]
[...] Poland was actually a territory which counted the most of Yiddish people, principally in Warsaw, and Vilnius, the “Jerusalem” of Central Europe. The Germans as the Russians both deported about a million on polish citizen to Soviet and German camps. Timothy Snyder bring out not only Jews polish were deported. Indeed, when he explains that some victims wrote the last message to their mother, Jews wrote in Yiddish although Non-Jews wrote in Polish. It shows that people from this nation were really persecuted. [...]
[...] And yet the number of victims was fully higher considering the Ukrainian starvation. Could we minimize the Stalin's mass killing on the grounds that communism is based on an ideal of equality between social classes? And yet the ideological communism from Stalin was just a strategy to dominate and become a higher powerful nation. The starvation was deliberate and man-made by the collectivization policies of the Soviet Union in a continuation of their efforts to liquidate an entire class of people that called Kulaks and their persecution of anyone they perceived to be an enemy of the state and people, whether it was a religion, the cultural elite, or an entire culture of people. [...]
[...] Are they undervalued? The aspirations of Hitler and Stalin were visibly the same but with different settlements. Hitler wanted to fight against the Jewish capitalism very high in Central Europe and Stalin used the collectivization system to become a powerful State by gaining with exports profits but outcome was finally similar because it led to mass killing in order to dominate. But Communism was not so blamed than fascism parti. Now, begin the debate because communism still exists in Eastern Europe and abroad. [...]
