The Holocaust was far from being merely a German-Jewish phenomenon. The Holocaust was enacted in the fevered dreamscapes of Eastern Europe where right and wrong were seldom on opposite sides and where fear and hatred were a way of life. This was a frontierland where borders and peoples had fluctuated throughout history and where the Jew and the Gypsy were symbols of transience and instability. Holocaust was a state of mind here before it was Nazi policy.
