Modern Europe has been shaped by 'ethnic cleansing' - the state-ordered expulsion of populations on the grounds of national identity. This important study brings together historians from across the continent to demonstrate how millions were brutally displaced from their homelands, first during the expansion of the Third Reich and then, after its defeat, by the new states that emerged from its ashes. It reveals a complex and troubling pattern of expulsion and exile that reverberates to this day.
