Pogroms have been widespread everywhere and against many groups.
You make your point well. And thanks.
Some of these things I knew about, some I didn't, and some I doubted.

This is what is most chilling. Like in Azerbaijan, in Sumgait and Baku. People had lived together, as neighbors, for at least 100 years. Then butchery, not over a local offense, but over a territorial issue in another area.

Tesla for one, was Serbian by blood but he was born in Croatia. If you ask him about pogroms, he would say- "nothing like that ever happened to me". And he would probably look to Croatia as his motherland/homeland.....
So, just because these pogroms happened, it does not mean that they happened in every place in that country and that they happened to every single hated minority person who lived in that country. Some places were spared and nothing happened there....
.....Some people were in some other place where things were going OK. So, if you meet them, they will say:
"Nothing like that ever happened to me".
Interesting, and educational. Thanks again.
