"... as I [the author] am a classicist ... I like to see things through the lens of Greek tragedy ... that real tragedy is never a straightforward confrontation between Good and Evil. ... The tragedy of certain areas of Eastern Europe between 1939 and 1944 was, in this sense, a true tragedy since the Jews of eastern Poland, who knew they would suffer unimaginably if they came under Nazi rule, viewed the Soviets as liberators in 1939, when eastern Poland was ceded ... to the Soviet Union; whereas the Ukrainians of eastern Poland, who had suffered unimaginably under Soviet oppression during the 1920s and 1930s [suffering 5-7 million starved to death], viewed the cession of eastern Poland to the Soviet Union in 1939 as a national disaster, and saw the Nazis as liberators in 1941, when the Germans invaded and took control.
