Balkan Holocausts? compares and contrasts Serbian and Croatian propaganda from 1986 to 1999, interpreting each one group's modern interpretations of heritage and present occasions. It bargains a close dialogue of holocaust imagery and the background of victim-centered writing in nationalism thought, together with the hyperlinks among the comparative genocide debate, the so-called holocaust undefined, and Serbian and Croatian nationalism. No experiences on Yugoslavia have up to now committed major area to such research.
