Timothy Snyder


On his book Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin

Cover Interview of November 28, 2010

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Killing in the Bloodlands is the central event of the twentieth century.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“We have failed to see the mass death as a single event at a given time and place.”

On the second:

“Another of my purposes was to reclaim the individuality of each victim.”
