Description:

Dr. Lou said that in that region the intermingling of the population occurred under Communism. Even though the Slavs should be considered more of a linguistic group than an ethnic group, a form of “bipolar disintegration” triggered the strife. After the Soviet Union broke up, ethno-nationalsim was released in that region that previously had been curtailed. People remember the atrocities that occurred in past generations as their lands were the site of wars and changing rulers.
