    1. Mieczyslaw Kasprzyk on said:

      I was raised amongst survivors of the great horror that was the War in Eastern Europe. My mother endured forced labour under the Soviets in 1940 and slave labour under the Nazis after 1941. She saw some of her family being deported by the Soviets to almost certain death in Kazakhstan and discovered the rest in a mass grave, shot by the Nazis. Her best friend survived Auschwitz. My Godfather was a partizan in the forests around Lwow, fighting both Nazis and Soviets. My Godmother lived through the [...]

      Man. Oh, man.This book is without a doubt the most depressing thing I've ever read. If there was ever a time and place that demonstrated man's inhumanity to man, it would be the "Bloodlands," the areas of Eastern Europe squashed flat two or three times by Hitler and Stalin. The author's accounts of casual starvation, brutal repression, and mass murder were horrifying not just because they happened, but because both victims and perpetrators were everyday, normal people.This is why you read the ep [...]

      History As Intention and ResponseHistory can be told in several ways: as a textbook-like sequence of events and dates; as a moral tale; as a story of the strong or of the weak; from the point of view of the victors or the vanquished; as an account of divine providence or satanic interference. Snyder has a particularly engaging method of narrating history: as intention and response to circumstances. According to his title one could conceive his subject as the history of a specific geographical re [...]

    5. Matt on said:

      Timothy Snyder’s Bloodlands is about the worst place that ever existed in the world: that unfortunate slice of Europe ruled by the two evilest people who ever inhabited our earth: Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Imagine a Venn diagram of evil. The left (west) loop is Hitler; the right (east) loop in Stalin. And in the middle, where the two circles overlap, is the bloodlands, extending “from central Poland to western Russia, through Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic States.” From 1933 to 194 [...]

    6. Clif Hostetler on said:

      This is history that deserves to be read, if for no other reason, to acknowledge the individual lives of so many innocent people deliberately murdered. We’re not talking war casualties or so-called collateral wartime deaths. We’re talking civilians sentenced to death by deliberate national policy. Sometimes they were targeted because of national, political, or ethnic reasons. Sometimes they were targeted for no particular discernible reason. The author does a good job of balancing the numbin [...]

    7. Manray9 on said:

      The history told in Timothy Snyder's Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin is not a revelation. Readers familiar with the works of Robert Conquest, Daniel Goldhagen, Anne Applebaum, or Halik Kochanski have read it all before. Snyder presents it with a new perspective, concentrating on the plight of the minority peoples caught between the two ideological empires of the mid-twentieth century – Ukrainians, Belorussians, Balts, Roma, Russians, Germans, Poles, Jews – all pawns of Hitler an [...]

    8. Ray on said:

      Bloodlands. The poor beknighted ribbon of land caught between Hitler and Stalin, monstrous merciless dictators, with their absolutist ideologies and willing apparatchiks. Comprising the Baltic states, Poland, Belorussia and Ukraine, fourteen million of whose civilian inhabitants died as a result of deliberate policies of extermination or neglect. It started even before the Second World War, with three million Ukrainians starved so that Stalin could claim victory in his collectivisaton drive. Man [...]

    9. Marc on said:

      Having read hundreds of books on World War II, it's pretty rare to come across a book which covers a topic I'm not very familiar with. However, the subject of the Holocaust is one which I've avoided mostly because it's just too damn depressing, and while this book covers a broader topic it's probably one I would have skipped in the past. I'm glad I didn't skip this one.The author defines the Bloodlands as the lands between pre-war Nazi Germany and the western edge of the Russian Republic, predom [...]

    10. David M on said:

      Reading this book is a painful experience, and when it's not painful it's even worse because you realize you've become desensitized by statistics, the sheer number of deaths. Starting with the planned famine in Ukraine, and then each subsequent chapter gets - I won't say 'worse'; it's maybe a little vulgar to try and quantify these things. Each subsequent chapter details something horrific enough to defy belief, and the scale of killing keeps increasing (even though what Stalin did to Ukraine wa [...]

    11. Dawne on said:

      This book should be required reading of all world citizens. Timothy Snyder outlines the policies and actions of Hitler and Stalin between 1933 and 1945 and the effect they had on the people living in Eastern Europe (Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and the Baltic states). The Nazis and the Soviets, murdered over 14 million people in direct mass murder campaigns and actions. This does not count the millions of soldiers lost or the casualties of civilian life and death in wartime, but only the del [...]

    12. Mikey B. on said:

      An account of what happened in the lands between Hitler and Stalin from 1933 to 1952 (the year Stalin died). These consist of the countries of present day Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and the western part of the Russian Federation. The principal thesis of the author is that we should not look at these lands as being affected by just one of the two evil dictators. We cannot look at the history of this land as simple chronology, acting in different time slots. The very boun [...]

    13. Sylvia on said:

      I always thought I knew a good deal of what happened during World War II. Both my parents were adults and have told me and my sisters a lot about it. I still care for the little diary my mother kept, collecting all kind of illegal newspapers and forbidden cartoons. Last year I read about this book and I was curious what could be told more. Well I got my share and more than I desired. I have finished it for the first time, but I surely have to read it another time and another, for there is much t [...]

    14. Greg Brozeit on said:

      Like all good works of history, Bloodlands poses as many questions as it seeks to explain and answers many more. The recapitulation of the mass killings perpetrated under the Stalin and Hitler regimes has never before been so explicit and thorough. But I would argue that Snyder is too meticulous in drawing lines and categorizations—although I completely understand and respect his methodology—in that they do not completely live up to the theme and subtitle of his concluding chapter: humanity. [...]

    15. Nooilforpacifists on said:

      Not for the faint-hearted…or for bedtime reading. A lengthy, methodical study of the 14 million civilians murdered by Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia between 1933-1945. Snyder doesn't so much ask "How?", but Who?" and "Why?". His contribution is sorting out sequences and ethnic minorities (Kulaks, Ukraines, Roma, etc.) in the serial purges. Also, over and over, he faces the question: "Who are the Jews?"--nationals of their country (Poland, Lithuania, etc.) or inter-national tribe. And in bringi [...]

      The Economist:IN THE middle of the 20th century Europe’s two totalitarian empires, Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Soviet Union, killed 14m non-combatants, in peacetime and in war. The who, why, when, where and how of these mass murders is the subject of a gripping and comprehensive new book by Timothy Snyder of Yale University.The term coined in the book’s title encapsulates the thesis. The “bloodlands” are the stretch of territory from the Baltic to the Black Sea where Europe’s most murd [...]

    17. Holly on said:

      A book that suggests that the Holocaust and mass killings of the World War II-era were worse, that's right, worse, than we were taught to believe. Snyder shows that "the image of the German concentration camps as the worst element of National Socialism is an illusion," and The American and British soldiers who liberated the dying inmates from camps in Germany believed that they had discovered the horrors of Nazism. The images their photographers and cameramen captured of the corpses and the livi [...]

    18. David on said:

      In a recent New Yorker interview Martin Amis quoted W.G. Sebald who said that "no serious person ever thinks about anything else except Hitler and Stalin."Not one person in ten thousand knows the extent and depth of the killing perpetrated by the Soviets and Nazis in the "Bloodlands" (Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, western Russia and the Baltic states) between 1933 and 1953.

    19. Tanya on said:

      It is oft said that history is written by the victors, and this was the case with World War II. Americans and Brits largely wrote the story of the war in the Pacific, Western Europe and North Africa. But the Russians took the lead in establishing collective memory of the war on the Eastern front, consciously shaped history to fit their ideology, and suppressed any evidence that contradicted their narrative. The outcome had to support their concept of the Great Patriotic War wherein all casualtie [...]

    20. Brendan Hodge on said:

      The Holocaust and World War II are probably two of the most freqently covered tropics in twenties century history, yet in Bloodlands Timothy Snyder brings a truly fresh and revealing perspective to what might otherwise seem an often covered topic. This is, quite simply, one of the best history books I have read.Snyder looks at the mass killing campaigns of both Hitler and Stalin in the are between Germany and Russia, from 1930 to 1947. Thus, he starts with the manufactured famine in Ukraine, cov [...]

    21. Jonathan Yu on said:

      The Bloodlands is a book that I first noticed in a review on Slate. At the time, the review noted several atrocities that the book includes in its pages. I read the review and determined that it made sense to get this book. This book is not a book to be enjoyed. Not a book to be loved. Not a book to sit down and just "read". This is a book that you experience, slog through, and weep on. It destroys your belief in humanity, your optimism for human brotherhood, and causes you to feel unending grie [...]

      Ke knize mě přivedl článek v časopise Respekt od autora a také aktuální situace (Rusko obsadilo Krym). Původně jsem měla připravenou na čtení Osvětimskou knihovnici, ale nakonec jsem sáhla po této knize a určitě jsem nelitovala. Rozhodně to není příjemné čtení a po první kapitole pojednávající o ukrajinském hladomoru jsem myslela, že "tohle teda nedám.", ale naštěstí se pak kniha trochu zklidnila (nebo mě nejvíc bere utrpení dětí - matka dvou malých dět [...]

    23. Pete Warden on said:

      It's shocking to realize I've grown up with a half-blind view of the Holocaust. After the eastern killing grounds swallowed up by a Soviet regime with its own mass-murders to hide, we were left with witnesses and evidence from only Western Europe.Over the last few decades, scholars have unearthed all the threads of the story Snyder tells, but his contribution is to lay it out as a clear and unified narrative. It's easy to be numbed by the scale of the evil, but he keeps reminding us that the mon [...]

    24. Kitty Red-Eye on said:

      Quite massive, covering an extremely bloody and violent time and place in less than 450 pages. So obviously, It's very compact and as the topic alone reveals, terrible. But the book is very good. The subject matter is heavy, but It's not very difficult to read, thanks to the author's good organization and presentation of his study. Impressive source material, very interesting perspective with treating the Soviet-German-Soviet-occupied zones of Europe as one and telling the story about these nigh [...]

    25. David Singerman on said:

      Timothy Snyder's "Bloodlands"I don't know enough about Eastern-European history to address Snyder's claim that the mass killing of fourteen million people in Poland, Belarus, the Baltic states and western Russia was "the central event" of modern European history. But that certainly seems like a plausible claim, or rather it seems difficult to imagine an event that could be more significant for the history of the continent. Even an invading army can pass over a land like a wave and leave society [...]

    26. Brad Eastman on said:

      Although very well written, I found this book very difficult to read. The book is an important history of a region about which Americans seem to know little, However, be prepared to feel very pessimistic about humanity as you read this work. Mr. Snyder chronicles the fate of those areas subject to both German and Soviet control in the 30's and 40's. We know of the brutality of the Germans and we have heard of the brutality of Stalin, but Mr. Snyder chronicles the brutality on both a historical a [...]

      A historical research to the mass murders committed by Stalin and Hitler before and during the Second World WarTogether, the nazi and soviet regime massmurdered more than 14 million people. The murders were started in the early 1930's, when Stalin deliberatedly let more than 3 million people starve to death in the Ukraine. It continued with the Great Terror in 1937 and 1938, where approximatedly 700.000 people were shot. During the partition of Poland, both Germany and Russia worked together to [...]

    28. Vincent on said:

      Bloodlands is a book that is both deeply disturbing and compelling. It describes an area from the North Sea to the Crimean Sea and from Eastern Poland to Western Ukraine that was the scene of millions of deaths between 1933 - 1949. Caught between Stalin and Hitler it's population was intentionally starved, robbed, abused, tortured and killed in planned, organized and capricious decisions of the two greatest mass murders of the twentieth century.In a recent New York Times article, author Martin A [...]

      A perceptive account of what the author identifies as the bloodlands, an area where Nazi and Soviet governmental policies deliberately mass murdered fourteen million of their own citizens from the years 1933 to 1945. Geographically the bloodlands stretched from central Poland to western Russia including Belarus, the Ukraine and the Baltic States. Shockingly, the count is of civilians, civilians who were the target of demented ideology and formal policy and who met their doom through starvation - [...]

      Reading this Book is a terrible Thing to do. I thought i knew European History, at least the broad lines of what has happened during the last century. A lot of historians and scholars have collected important and disturbing informations concerning the second world war, but for the first time I could have a view of what happened on a part of my continent far away from the place were I live (France). Without this book I wouldn't have been able to understand so clearly the nationalist tensions whic [...]
