The book Resettlement and Exterminations of Populations - a Syndrome of Modern History is largely or entirely concerned with involuntary, i.e. forced migration, where the individual person or entire groups of populations are directly, but also indirectly forced to leave their (frequently ancient) homes by the public authority. It is the result of work and cooperation of historians from the two continents – Australia and Europe, a total of six states whose essays are classified into the four blocks: Resettlement and Extermination of the Populations – the Theories and the Plans (and the Facts), Resettlement and Extermination of the Populations – the Facts (and the Theories and the Plans), Nazi “New Europe” and its corollary – the end of the world prestige of Europe and Czechoslovakia and its migration policy (1918-1992). It seeks to answer or suggest an answer to the following questions: Why did the resettlement locations and exterminations of populations actually occur and what were the motives? Were border massacres only accidental or did they serve to advance systematic mass killing with their frequency? Do we know all facts about resettlements and exterminations of populations between the 18th and 20th century? Do we know the true motives, forms and instruments of these actions? Should we try and answer the question to what extent discussions on forceful migration of populations have been conducted so far? However, this work does not intend to be a reading-book or a manual; it wants to serve as a challenge in recognition of and search for the substance of the fundamentals in the forced migration process.
