...Samuel Sinner's new book is a welcome addition to a growing body of
literature on the subject of genocide. Sinner describes the various
phases of the genocide perpetrated against the Russlanddeutschen and
calculates the resulting excess mortality from each of these phases.
The whole process of this genocide encompassed 34 years
   (1915-1949) and three different rulers; Tsar Nicholas II, Lenin, and
Stalin. During World War I, Tsar Nicholas II deported close to 200,000
ethnic Germans from Volhynia, Bessarabia, and other western regions of
the Russian Empire to Siberia.. .
