    schema:description "Introduces the term "European rimlands", referring to territories which include the Balkans, Anatolia, Caucasus, and the vast Eastern European area lying between the Baltic and Black Seas, from Silesia in the west to the Dnieper in the east. These were territories to which always several empires (Germany, Russia, and the Habsburg and Ottoman Empires) pretended, but none was able to absorb the territories' populations into the empires' historical core. Thus, the empires came to regard these populations as disturbing and dangerous minorities. With the rise of nationalism during and after the Great War, states of the region, both old and new, resorted to ethnic cleansing. Argues that genocide is not an aberrant phenomenon in modern history, but systemic: it is integral to a mainstream historical trajectory of development towards a single, global, political economy composed of nation states. Admits that although all national elites of the region were obsessed with the "Jewish problem" in this period, the Nazi Holocaust corresponds to the scheme of ethnic cleansing of 1912-53 only in the Eastern European area, where it was perpetrated by the army, as e.g. in Turkish and Soviet genocidal actions, rather than by party ideologists, as in the Reich. Political considerations, such as the identification of Jews with the ruling elite of the USSR (the rival "anti-system" state), as well as the idea of "revenge on world Jewry" for Germany's defeat of 1918, were also among the motives for the Holocaust. On the other hand, genocidal anti-Jewish actions perpetrated by Germany's satellites (e.g. Croatia, Romania, and Slovakia) during World War II resemble other ethnic cleansings in the rimlands. After 1945 the Soviet Union became the incontestable master of much of the rimlands, and it began its own campaign of ethnic and cultural homogenization. Dwells on Stalin's anti-Jewish campaign of 1948-53, comparing it to Hitler's Final Solution."@en ;
