what country would you say has had the most tragic past?
The entire midEast
Poland, Iraq’s recent past, is pretty damn awful.
Seems like countries (or peoples) caught in the middle of larger conflicts are the top contenders here. Poland and other Eastern European countries fit that bill. Countries like Lebanon and Syria are Middle Eastern examples. But then there’s also the countries with histories of genocide: Burma, Rwanda, Bosnia, and all those under Nazi occupation, just to name a few.
I’m going have to agree with the others...Poland
poland. they basically beat the ottomans in 1683 and stop communist expansion in central europe in 1919 and get repaid by being invaded by every world power in the area.
