Summary "Purifying the Nation is a provocative new exploration of the Holocaust in World War II Romania. Challenging claims by today's nationalists, Vladimir Solonari argues that the persecution of Jews and Roma by the Romanian government was not a response to pressure from the country's ally, Nazi Germany, but rather stemmed from a longstanding Romanian vision of an ethnically pure Romania. Through a rigorous, archive-based analysis of the country's interwar political and intellectual climate, as well as policies and practices during Romania's alliance with the Nazis, Solonari sheds valuable new light on the genocidal activities of one of Hitler's European satellites."--BOOK JACKET.
