Estonia, Poland, Ukraine: The Holocaust

A Step At A Time quotes from an article on the “European complicity and responsibility” for the Holocaust and the ways in which Poland and Ukraine are dealing with “vague and extremely unfair accusations levelled at a whole nation.” AnTyx writes about Estonia's pre-war Jewish population: “While it is a historical fact that Estonia was the first country under Nazi occupation to have been declared ‘judenfrei’, it's often overlooked that the Estonian Jewish congregation was far smaller than that in either Latvia and Lithuania. When the Germans arrived, they found less than a thousand Jews – compared to tens of thousands in Latvia and significantly more in Lithuania.”
