Memoir 193
This vol. discusses how modernization & the birth of the nation state, with the concomitant impact of Western ideas, gave birth to a significantly different form of anti-Semitism in Romania. This type, though on occasion extraordinarily savage & marked by a self-serving disingenuousness, definted its national goals in a limited manner. That it did so would be critical in the 20th century for the survival of almost half a million Romanian Jews. Its unusual character would be hidden from view in most instances by a brutality of execution that has led observers over the course of the last hundred years or so to focus on the style rather than substance of what happened. For whatever reasons, base or noble, the Romanians did not cooperate in the full execution of the Final Solution as the Nazis wanted & expected them to do. As they had done in the 19th century, the Romanians attempted to counterpoise Great Power interests & thereby pursue their own self-interest whenever the Jewish Question came into play.
