How could it happen, that continental Europe in the twentieth century became a "Europe of the Dictatorships"? It requires some effort to understand such processes. It is insufficient to observe merely the dictatorships and their mechanisms, rather one must also incorporate the seemingly harmless history leading up to that time and, above all, the transitions that took place. The book begins with a description of the historical situation after the First World War. Europe's brutalization through colonial wars and inter-European conflicts, carried out using means of mass extermination, led to fractures in civilized cultures. What follows in the second section is another state-by-state organized design of the transition from countries that were fascist (and countries that were made fascist) into communist states established in accordance with the Soviet model. The third part of the book is devoted to the history of the "Eastern Bloc" states from 1953 to 2013.
