Baltic urban spaces were highly divided and structured, both in their social and ethnic dimensions. By the twentieth century, ethnic strife became one of the most pressing issues for the local actors. Baltic cities became the primary arena that witnessed the fundamental reshaping of ethnic relationships and renegotiation of political loyalty that preceded (and in many ways: caused) and followed both World Wars. Those initially local processes were followed with growing nationwide attention, which, ultimately, greatly contributed to the radical transformation of the political map of Eastern and Central Europe by the middle of the twentieth century.
