Example text

Where the nation is situated constitutes the first of a number of questions that must be answered before one can establish what roots it has in Europe. In geographical terms, there is no doubt that Slovakia lies in the centre of Europe, especially if we accept Europe as a geographical extension that stretches from the Atlantic to the Urals, as French President Charles de Gaulle once put it. 4 But political considerations have also put Slovakia in Eastern Europe, certainly for a little less than a half-century in modern times; Europe was divided ideologically at that time and Slovakia belonged in the Soviet sphere, a sphere not considered really European: the country and its inhabitants were cut off from the rest of Europe and the Western world.

The Struggle for Survival, 2nd edn. (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2005), pp. 293–4. 34 See Stanislav J. Kirschbaum, ‘The Martinovics Conspiracy and the Slovaks’, Österreichische Osthefte 43 (1/2) (2001), 45–55. 35 For an excellent analysis of the importance of this principle at the peace conference, see Margaret Macmillan, Paris 1919. Six Months that Changed the World (New York: Random House, 2001), pp. 109–54 and 207–70. 36 See Stanislav J. Kirschbaum, ‘The First Slovak Republic (1939–1945); Some Thoughts on Its Meaning in Slovak History’, Österreichische Osthefte 41 (3/4) (1999), 405–25.

It could be said that everything that was beyond the ideal Berlin–Trieste–Otranto line was non-existent, it was something that, at best, Western Europe could colonize, educate and validate for itself. This dichotomous idea of the European continent was, however, unfounded. What is Central Europe? Historically, there is a central area in Europe with specific characteristics, an area that extends from the Baltic to the Aegean Sea, located between the Latin Germanic West and the Byzantine Slavic East, whose political centre was in Muscovite Russia.
