comment What was unreasonable about Austria's ultimatum to Serbia?
@FelixGoldberg: Let's just say that the feeling was "mutual," but that Austria was (by far) the greater "sinner." It's like saying that Poland was a bit of a hyena when she swallowed a small portion of the Czech Republic in 1939, but was nothing compared to Germany in that year.

comment Were concentration camp guards allowed to talk about their work at home?
@PieterGeerkens: The difference between a death camp and a slave labour camp is meaningful in terms of life and death, but not enough to make guards want to talk more about one than the other, which was the point of the OP's question. I can't picture either you or me telling our families, "We don't really kill people in the slave labour camp where I work, only work them to death.

comment Were concentration camp guards allowed to talk about their work at home?
@AndrewGrimm: That's beside the point. For everyone that "acknowledged" what they did, 10 (or 100) stood by and "suffered in silence." But the point was that they didn't "brag" as the OP thought they might.

comment Where did Metternich say the Balkans began?
@Gangnus: Metternich was driven mainly by balance of power considerations, sometimes against, sometimes for, Russia, depending on who was more threatening. But his strategy was to ally with "German" states (with the possible exception of Prussia). The Ottoman Empire also figured in this balance of power. So letting go of the former "Ottoman" territories as a buffer zone wouldn't have been the worst idea in the world.
