“A superb and immensely important book.”—Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post.
In Savage Continent, Keith Lowe describes a continent where individual Germans and collaborators were rounded up and summarily executed, where concentration camps were reopened, and violent anti-Semitism was reborn. In some of the monstrous acts of ethnic cleansing the world has ever seen, tens of millions were expelled from their ancestral homelands. Savage Continent is the story of post–war Europe, from the close of the war right to the establishment of an uneasy stability at the end of the 1940s.
Savage Continent is the chronicle of a world gone mad, the standard history of post–World War II Europe for years to come.
