Bloodlands

Europe Between Hitler and Stalin. Winner of the Hannah-Arendt-Preis für politisches Denken 2013

Under Hitler and Stalin the Nazi and Soviet regimes murdered fourteen million people in the bloodlands between Berlin and Moscow.

The killing fields extended from central Polads to western Russia. For twelve savage years, on this bloodsoaked soil an average of one million individuals - mostly women, children and the aged - were murdered every year. Though in 1939 these lands became battlefields, not one of these fourteen million was killed in combat. They were victims of a murderous policy, not casualties of war.

Int his deeply unsettling and revelatory book, Timothy Snyder gives voice to the testimony of the victims through the letters home, the notes flung from trains, the diaries on corpses. It is a brilliantly researched, profoundly humane and authoritative bok that demands we pay attention to those that history is in danger of forgetting.
Rezension
"A hugely important historian of this nightmarish era. Nobody has explained it this way before" William Leith Evening Standard

Zitat
"A superb work of scholarship, full of revealing detail... Snyder does justice to the horror of his subject through the power of his storytelling" Sunday Times "Superb and harrowing history" Financial Times, Books of the Year "An original, wonderful and horrifying book...this beautifully written and superbly researched work is undoubtedly one of the most important to emerge for a long time" -- Anthony Beevor "An excellent, authoritative and imaginative book, which tells the grim story of the greatest human and demographic tragedy in European history with exemplary clarity. Snyder set out to give a human face to the many millions of victims of totalitarianism. He has succeeded admirably" -- Roger Moorhouse BBC History Magazine "Bloodlands - impeccably researched and appropriately sensitive to its volatile material - is the most important book to appear on this subject for decades and will surely become the reference in its field" -- Tony Judt
