Readers may not have deduced from the way the word is mentioned in the article that “Bloodlands” is actually the title of Timothy Snyder’s 2010 award-winning book, which is subtitled, “Europe between Hitler and Stalin.” Western readers for whom much in the article is unfamiliar or puzzling, and who want some deeper historical background (how, for example, are Poland and Lithuania “like a couple that broke up but stayed good friends”?), might also find Robert Frost’s The Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania of considerable interest. Volume I, the first detailed study in English of this neglected region, was published in 2015, and we’re awaiting the second instalment.
