New episode of our podcast series released

Episode 5: Minority crises in ‘the Rimlands’

Mark Levene (University of Southhampton) in conversation with Raul Cârstocea (Maynooth University)

In this episode, Mark Levene, Emeritus Fellow in History at the University of Southampton, talks to Raul Cârstocea, Lecturer in European History at Maynooth University and Honorary Fellow at the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, University of Leicester, about historical ethnic and religious diversity in Central and Eastern Europe and the challenges the region and its people have faced throughout the 20th century. Key to this was the ethnic violence that accompanied the collapse of the European empires from 1917 to 1923 and the atrocities of the Second World War, as well as the ongoing climate crisis as experienced by the region’s minority groups.
