When one of the most vocal proponents of the Romanian cause in France wrote about the country at the end of the Crimean War, he described Romanians as
“a discovered nationality…lost at the end of Europe.” In contrast, the Balkans were very much on the radar of Jewish activists in Western Europe. The exclusion of their co-religionists from civil and political rights in several states in the Balkans was a thorn on their side in the second half of the nineteenth century. In some cases, it remained so well into the twentieth. Why were Jews in Western Europe so concerned about Jews in the Balkans? What do we learn about European Jewish history when we look at it from the viewpoint of this region?
