How was Eastern Europe treated marginally throughout history, especially during World War I,
World War II, & the communist era?
Eastern Europe was the primary battlefront of both World War I and World War II. In essence both wars were an attempt by the German countries to expand eastward and extend their sphere of influence. This story is marginalized in the west, because we typically fought in France or other parts of western Europe. We like to tell history as it relates to us and that means focusing on the western European theatre.
Unsure, but wasn't a lot of what we know as Eastern European countries today Russia then other than Poland and the Baltic States. Poland received a lot of historical attention with the devastation of it by Germany during WWII. There were six extermination camps and five concentration camps in Poland, There were from what I see four German offenses that traversed through Poland advancing upon Russia.

I wonder how many of us here on hp are there from countries in eastern and central Europe. I personally don't know of any. Why don't we get to know each other better?
