    So, we all know the controversy about Alexander the Great that is going on between Greece and FYROM.

    How much did Native Populations influence South Slavs?

    Greetings everyone, As a history fan, and a Croatian, I'm naturally drawn to the history and origins of my people. Generally we're simply seen as remnants of the Slavic migrations of the Dark Ages, but I have some questions to prod, and possibly some stereotypes to break. How Slavic are South...

    What are all of the reasons Germanic nations looked down on the Slavs?

    Very straight forward question. Some things are obvious, but there must be some more obscure reasons for this. Any ideas?

    Migration of Polabian Slavs towards Belarus

    Some Belarusian scholars (for example M. Jezowa, V. Sedov, Perkhavko, Zhuravlev, A. Zalizniak, A. I. Kushniarevich, etc.) have proposed, that during the 10th century there was a large-scale eastward migration of Polabian-Sorbian Slavic refugees from what is now East Germany towards what is now...

Any thoughts on this? After all, I am certainly curious...

    How extensively were German soldiers indoctrinated to see Slavs as subhuman?

    Hitler took power in 1933. The Soviet Union was invaded in June 1941. That's 8 years worth of indoctrination and propaganda required to turn the Wehrmacht into Hitler's instrument of conquest and extermination. My question is exactly how could the Nazi Party/Nazi government indoctrinate the...

    Nazi propaganda describing Slavs as subhumans

    Anyone who has read any books on Adolf Hitler, Nazism and the Third Reich will have read how the Nazis considered the Slavs to be subhumans (Untermenschen) yet it's never referenced.

    Slavs = slaves?

    I keep hearing conflicting information on this, putting aside the matter of what the relation is between the words, whether "slav" derives from "slave" or the other way around or neither, were slavs indeed enslaved historically (to a greater extent than other people) and when and by whom?
