Millions of the oppressed peoples of Europe have just emerged from the darkness of autocracy into the sunlight of freedom,
self-government, commercial and industrial development, and progress toward a higher civilization.
The POLES, formerly a strong, heroic nation, but overwhelmed
and crushed by invasion and oppression, and split into fragments by
their conquerors, are now to be reunited and given a free road to
their national destiny.
The LITHLfANIANS, doubly oppressed by -German landowners
and Russian bureaucrats, will now become masters of their own
lives and national affairs, either as one independent state, or in
federation with other Baltic states.
The CZECHO-SLOVAKS, that great race of Bohemians, Mo
ravians and Slovaks which for 500 years has kept alive the inspira
tion of its torchbearers of liberty and freedom in the middle ages,
have now at last thrown off the heavy yoke of Austrian tyranny and
claimed their place in the family of free nations.
The JUGO-SLAVS, ground down by Austria, and severed from
their Montenegrin and Serbian kinsfolk, have gathered their
strength and seized the prize of liberty and reunion won for them
in the world struggle for democracy.
Watch the unfolding history of these and other resurgent races as it is told from week to week in
