Purifying the Nation is a provocative exploration of the Holocaust in World War II Romania. 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 the vision of an ethnically pure Romania. Through a rigorous, archive-based analysis of the country's interwar political and intellectual climate and policies and practices during its alliance with the Nazis, Solonari sheds valuable new light on the genocidal activities of one of Hitler's European satellites.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An important contribution to the literature of the Holocaust in Romania... Highly Recommended. * Choice *
Situates Romania's Holocaust within the larger framework of Ion Antonescu's vision of an ethnically homogenous Greater Romania. -- Daniel M. Pennell * Austrian History Yearbook *
Purifying the Nation makes a major contribution to the literature on ethnic cleansing during World War II. -- Irina Livezeanu * Slavic Review *
A very major addition to the scholarship on the subject. -- Daniel Chirot * Journal of Modern History *
This well-researched and scrupulous account is not only a significant contribution to Holocaust history, but also to the broader understanding of extremist nationalism and of the Antonescu regime. -- Stanley G. Payne * International History Review *
A valuable contribution to research on nationalism, violence, and statehood in interwar and wartime Southeastern Europe.
Solonari's work is exciting to read and his thesis is vigorously argued. The material is well organized into chapters, with a good narrative and excellent illustrations...
