THE LAND SOAKED WITH THE BLOOD
THE TRUTH AND THE LESS KNOWN FACTS ABOUT CROATS... AND
1918 ‑ 1995
PUBLISHER: B.O. Press. Serbia. 2000.
Old, or first, Croats are of Khazar descent? Are they an Ashkenazic tribe from the far
East of Europe? Maybe. Maybe not. Personally, I'm not sure. We still don't have enough
proofs for this theory... there are no proofs about. Not enough. But right now it doesn't
For the record, I'd like to make it clear ‑ the following story is based on FACTS.
Nationalists across the world have been giving for years their support to Croats. They
thought and miserly believed that Croats are the people with nationalists and racialists
aspirations who fought for freedom and against Communist regime in Serbia. Well, the
truth is a 'little bit' different.
This booklet contains the text of a most revealing and shocking story of Croats and
crimes not surpassed for brutality and atrocity in the whole history of Europe.
Croats: Serb‑haters and Jew‑loving hypocrites
Croatian people never have had a completely independent state. Over the
centuries, Croat‑sattled territories were parts and provinces of various kingdoms and
In the 20th century, instantly after the WW1, victorious Serbian army rescued Croatian people
from the "prison" ‑ what the Croats then called Austro‑Hungary.
Thus, Croatia joined Serbia in the first Yugoslav kingdom. Unfortunately, Croatian gratitude was
very short. From 1918 onward, Croatian politicians
like Stiepan Radich (communist), Macek (Jew) and later Pavelich (married to Jewess) had
been deliberately teaching their people to hate Serbs. For twenty‑three
years Croatian leaders had been persuading the Croat peasants and workers that the Serbian
"imperialists and oppressors" caused all their troubles and suffering.
Before them, there was a "legendary" Josip Franck. Franck (or Frank), who was
pureblooded Jew and dedicated freemason, was the "founding father" of Croatian racial
chauvinist ideology. For him, Croats are not part of the European race. He says that all
nations in the region of Balkans belong to "Croatian Race", including Bosnian muslims
Franck stated that Bosnian muslims are "the flowers of the Croatian Race"). Of course,
Franck's ideology was extremely anti‑Serb. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =
Who was Ante Starchevich?
He was most important Croatian ideologist and inspirator of the hate towards Serbs, after Josip
Franck. The author of theory of the racial and religious superiority of Croats over many
European peoples, especially over the Serbs. He maintained that "the Croatian people could
not restore its national State without prior extermination of the Serbian people". With Eugen
Kvaternik (probably Jew), he establish the Croatian Party of Right in 1861. Starcevic predicated
his policy on the so‑called "Croatian State right" and called for the creation of "Greater Croatia"
from the Alps to the Prokletie Mountains. Denying the political indIviduality and territorial
sovereignity of the Serbs in old Serbian provinces of Slavonia and Dalmatia, he and his followers
claimed that Serbs were "Orthodox Croats". However they thought of Croats as a superior and
of Serbs as an inferior race. The racial theory of Ante Starcevic and his "Franck‑loving"
successors resulted in the "Ustas‑(h)a" movement's atempts to create a pure Croatian and
Catholic‑only independent State of Croatia in the World War Two. Starcevic's statements that
the Serbs were a "race of "rats" and that, for this reason, they should be axed" was put into
practice in the Independent State of Croatia from 1941 to 1945.
Return of the Ante Pavelich and his Ustasha movement
As the danger of war approached, Yugoslav prince Paul (Pavle) felt it essential to solve the
Croatian question by democratic means. He thought that Milan Stojadinovic was incapable to
do it as he was Serb nationalist and pro‑German. In february 1939 he replaced him as premier
with Dragisa Cvetkovic. The Italian invasion of Albania in April was a further warning. After some
setbacks, an agreement with the Croats was achieved before war broke out.
The Cvetkovic‑Mac(h)ek agreement of August 1939 set up single Croatian province, which
included most territories of Croatian population. The administration of this area was placed in
the hands of Macek* and his party (Croatian Peasant Party) which was also represented in the
central Yugoslav government.
The agreement had an uncertain reception in both Serbia and Croatia: the Serbian politicians
felt betrayed by Macek, who appeared to have made a deal with the dictatorship at the expense
of the Serbian people; and on the Croatian side, though the majority accepted the
arrangement they (Croats) feared that the triumph of Axis powers would preclude them to set
up an independent Croatian state under their control, if Serbs keep Yugoslavia. So they
remained implacably opposed to Yugoslav state. But when an anglophile Yugoslav
government refused (already signed) pact with Adolf Hitler, Germans started to show their
interest in the exiled clandestine Marxist and Ustasha leader Ante Pavelich.
Soon, Ante Pavelich returned to Croatia and instantly came into power, supported by 90% of
Croatian population. Thus, Ustasha movement was the main force in Croatia.
"Bullets for Serbs"
On April 12, 1941, two days after Croatia was proclaimed for an independent state, an
order was published in the Zagreb (Croatia's capital) newspapers requiring all Serbs to
leave the country within twenty‑four hours and threatening that anyone hiding Serbs
would be shot! At that time in Croatia third of the population was actually Serb. This
order by Dr. Ante Pavelich, head of the "Independent State of Croatia", was a prelude
to a massacres of Serbs not surpassed for brutality and atrocity in the whole sorrowful
history of the European race. Even the communist massacres of the innocent people in
Russia, Ukraine, Poland, etc, incredible as this sounds, pale by comparison. More than
600,000 defenseless Serbs, long resident in 'Croatia', including men, women, and small
children, died in literally unprintable circumstances and another half‑million were driven
from their homes, penniless and dying of starvation by the wayside!
Devout Catholic, Dr. Mile Budak (Minister of Education and Cults in the Independent State of
Croatia's government) said on July 22, 1941: "The movement of the Ustasha is based on
religion. For Serbs we have three million bullets. We shall kill one part of the Serbs. We
shall deport another, and the rest of them will be forced to embrace our Roman Catholic faith.
Thus, our new Croatia will get rid of all Serbs in our midst in order to become one hundred
percent Catholic within ten years."
The organised terrorist attacks on Serbs and massacres were carried out by the three
branches of the Croatian forces: 1) the units of the "Ustashi" movement, 2) the so‑called
"Home Defense", and 3) the regular army. Local Croat officials often participated in the shooting
of prominent Serbian citizens belonging to their locality. Most of these officials were men who
had been put in by Dr. Machek himself when he set up his autonomous government in Croatia.
They went over, with almost no resignations, and continued their functions under Pavelich.
The object of the massacres was deliberate and political: it was to make Croatia a
"Greater Croatia" by annexing Bosnia and Herzegovina, so that, if the victor of the war
(WW2) allow the population to vote on their choice of country, there should be no
Serbs alive to cast their ballots.
It should be mentioned that Bosnia & Herzegovina has always been considered by
historians, geographers, and ethnologists to be a Serbian province, since it is
predominantly Serbian. The population statistics of Bosnia compiled by the
Austro‑Hungarian Empire in 1914 (prior to the outbreak of World War I), when Bosnia
was an Austro‑Hungarian province, may be considered to be impartial, since
Austro‑Hungary never liked or was likely to favor the Serbian people.
Austro‑Hungarian Statistics on the population of Bosnia ‑ 1914
Orthodox (Serbs) 930,000
Catholic (two thirds Croats, and one third Serbs) 420,000
It means that over one million Serbs lived in Bosnia at that time.
The history of the massacres is as follows: Between April 12 and 15 and on the night of
May 31, 1941, mass arrests were made in cities of Zagreb, Sarajevo (Bosnia's capital),
Mostar, Bana‑Luka, Travnik, Dubrovnik, Livno, and others. The first large massacres
occurred the night of May 31, when groups of prominent Serbian citizens were
"arrested" and taken to the outskirts of the towns and shot. These spring killings in
Croatia proper are generally referred to as the Glina massacres.
It should be mentioned that the Italian and German soldiers in Croatia and Bosnia tried
many times to intervene to save the defenseless Serbs and often succeeded. Thus
about 350 Serbians imprisoned by the Croats in Mostar, Livno, Trebinye, and
Dubrovnik were released by the Italian troops. There were many other instances where
the horrors revolted both Italian and German soldiers.
The great massacres of 1941 did not take place until June 24 to 28. They continued
intermittently until November 1942, by which time practically all the 1,250,000 Serbs
had been either exterminated or driven out. On June 22 a new order was issued stating
"anyone using force against citizens of the country would be severely punished." This
notice, designed to put the Serbs off the guard, was broadcast on the radio, read in
churches, and published in newspapers. But simultaneously Pavelich sent a coded
telegram to his Ustasha criminals ordering them to proceed with the massacres. What
happened can best be told by some of the eyewitnesses:
1. Walter Gorlitz (German military official) in his book "Der Zweite Weltkrieg 1939‑1945",
Stuttgart, 1952. Band 11. on page 125 writes the following:
"...Unfortunately, one of the first measures undertaken by the Catholic Ustashi regime was a
terrible military venture of extermination of the Serbian Greek‑Orthodox parts of population
which has come under the Croatian rule. The horrors that had taken place at that time had
thrown the young country into a predestined civil war..."
2. Karlheinz Deschner (German writer, Catholic and a professor of philosophy) in his
book "Mit Gott und den Faschisten", Stuttgart, October 1965 and "Abermalsrahen der
Hahn", Stuttgart, December 1962, writes the following:
"...The Serbs have become slaughterhouse material. In accordance with this doctrine the
Ustashi started actions against Serbs, the people of the highest cultural level in the Balkans
but not of the Catholic faith..."
"...Catholics were urged from the church pulpits to persecute Orthodox Serbs and especially
arduous in this were the Franciscans whose monasteries have for a long time served as
meeting grounds for the Ustashi..."
"...Furthermore it is understood that from the total of two million Orthodox population, almost
600,000 was killed..."
3. In 1953 Italian military authorities have made available to the press several documents
from their archives, pertaining to the Ustashi crimes perpetrated over the Serbian people.
Thus the daily "Il Tempo" of September 10, 1953, published the following excerpts from
the report of the Commander of the Italian "Sasari" division:
"Population in some places was completely exterminated, after having been tortured and
The horrors that the Ustashi have committed over the Serbian small girls is beyond all words.
There are hundreds of photographs confirming these deeds because those of them who have
survived the torture: bayonetted hits, pulling of tongues and teeth, nails and breast tips (all this
having been done after they were raped), were taken in by our officers and transported to Italian
hospitals where these documents and facts were gathered."
4. Curzio Malaparte, one of the most famous Italian writers who attained world fame,
wrote the book "Kaputt", Roma‑Milano 1948 (Decima edizione). The book was published
in New York, London, Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro, Brussels, Belgrade... In his book
Malaparte describes his visit to Ante Pavelic, the leader of Ustasha:
"...While they were talking I noticed a cane basket on the left hand side of the Pavelic's desk.
The cover was slightly raised and I could see that the basket was full of sea fruit. At least, that
is what I thought it was. It looked like oysters but extracted from the shells, like the ones that
you sometimes can see served on large plates at Fortnumm and Mason, in Piccadilly in
London. Casertano looked at me and gave me a sign with his eyes:
'How would you like to have some oyster soup?'
'Are they Dalmatian oysters?' I asked Pavelic.
Ante Pavelic took the lid off the basket and showed me the sea fruit, that sticky and jelly‑like
mass, and then said, laughing with his frank and tired laughter: 'This is the gift from my faithful
Ustashi, twenty kilos of human eyes.'"
5. Source: Letter written by Privislav Grizogono, a Croat and a Roman‑Catholic,
ex‑member of the Yugoslav Diplomatic Corps, addressed to Dr. Aloisius Stepinac,
Roman‑Catholic Archbishop of Zagreb, Croatia, February 8, 1942. Published in
translation by the ‘American Srbobran’, a Yugoslav paper in Pittsburgh, Pa., U.S.A.,
February 24, 1943:
"These atrocities do not amount to killings alone. They aim at extermination of
everything Serbian, including women, children, and aged men, and in terribly wild
tortures of the victims. These innocent Serbs were stuck on poles alive, and fires were
built on their bare chests. Literally, they were roasted alive, burned to death in their
homes and churches. Boiling water was poured on live victims before mutilation; their
flesh was salted. Eyes were dug out of live victims, ears amputated, noses and tongues
lobbed off. The beards and mustaches of priests, together with their skin, were ripped
off rudely by knives. They were tied to trucks and dragged behind them. The arms and
legs of the victims were broken and their heads were spiked"
"They were thrown into the deep cisterns and caves, then literally bombed to pieces.
Crowbars smashed their heads. Their children were thrown into fire, scalding water,
and fed to the fired lime furnaces. Other children were parted by their legs; their heads
crushed against walls and their spines dashed against rocks. These and many other
methods of torture were employed against the Serbs‑tortures which normal people
cannot conceive. Thousands of Serbian bodies floated down the Sava, Drava, and
Danube rivers and their tributaries. Many of these bodies bore tags: "Direction ‑
Belgrade. To Serbian King Peter". In one boat on the Sava river there was a pile of
children's heads, with a woman's head (presumably the mother of the children) labeled:
"Meat for John's Market ‑ in Belgrade" (meaning meat for the Serbian market)"
"Then, in Bosnia, a huge pile of roasted heads was found. Utensils full of Serbian blood
were also discovered; this was the hot blood of their murdered brothers that other
Serbs were forced to drink.
Countless women, girls, and children were raped ‑ mothers before daughters and
daughters before mothers ‑ while many women, girls, and little female children were
ushered off to Ustashi garrisons to be used as prostitutes. Rapes were committed even
before the altars of the Serbian Orthodox Churches. About 3,000 Serbs were murdered
in the Serbian Orthodox Church at Glina, and the massacre of Serbs before the altar at
Kladusha Orthodox Church with sledgehammers is something never mentioned in
There are detailed and official reports about these unheard‑of crimes. They are so
terrible they have shocked even the Germans and Italians. Many pictures were taken of
these massacres and torture orgies. The German soldiers and officers claim the Croats
did these same things in Germany during the Thirty‑Year War and that, since then,
there is a proverb in Germany: “God save us from cholera, hunger, and the Croats”.
Even the Germans from Srem (Syrmia, a province in Northern Serbia) hate us and act
friendly toward the Serbs. The Italians have photographed a vessel holding 31.5
kilograms of Serbian eyes, and one Croat decorated with a wreath of Serbian eyes
came to Dubrovnik with two wreaths of Serbian tongues.
Though we Croats shall never be able to erase this shamefulness which we brought
upon ourselves with these crimes, we can at least lessen our responsibility before the
world and our consciences if we raise our voices in protest against all these crimes.
This is the last hour for us to do so. After all the great crimes in history, punishments
follow! What will happen to us Croats if the impression is formed that we participated in
all these crimes to the finish?!"
At Zemun, Feb. 8, 1942
There are passages in this document relating to Croatian atrocities which are
Source: A legal affidavit, signed and sworn to by Hilmia Herberovic, a Mohammedan
resident of Croatia, in regard to the Glina massacres:
"On the day of the bombing I was in Belgrade, and I left on the same day to report to
my command in Susak in accordance with my mobilisation orders.... I cannot remember
the date, but I think it must have been the 17th or 18th of April 1941. The unit
commander on that date called all soldiers together and informed us that the war was
over and everyone should proceed home.... I arrived home in Bosanski Novi (a small
town in Bosnia) about the 24th of April, 1941.... Then I received an order from the
military command in Petrina to report there.... At the beginning of June my unit was
ordered to Glina to establish order and peace in that district and to collect all the arms
and ammunition from the people....
On our arrival in Glina we searched the houses of that town and then went to the
neighboring villages. When the searching was over, the Ustashis arrived from Zagreb
and Petrina and we were then ordered to round up from the villages all men from twenty
to forty five years of age.... At the beginning we arrested only the men. We collected
them from the villages and shut them in the Court gaol. There they remained several
days, until the gaols were filled, and they were then put to death. The killing was done
in several ways. Some were locked up in the Orthodox Church in Glina, which could
contain 1,000 men. Then the unit officer chose about fifteen men to do the killing. They
were then sent into the church with knives.
During the butchering, sentries were placed before the church. This was necessary
because some of the Orthodox Serbs climbed up the bell tower and jumped into the
porch. All these were killed by the sentries in the porch. I was three times chosen to do
the killing. Each time we were accompanied by some officers, Josip Dobric and Miho
Cvitkovich, and some Croatian Ustashi officers.
When we entered the church the officers remained at the door and watched while we
did the killing. The killing usually began at about ten o'clock in the evening and lasted
until two o'clock in the morning, and the cries were continued until the last Serb was
killed. These killings in the church took place seven‑eight times, and I took part in them
three times. Every time we were so bespattered with blood that our uniforms could not
be cleaned. We therefore changed them in the magazine and washed them later. The
church was washed after every killing, after the corpses were taken away in motor
trucks. Usually they were thrown into the river Glina. Sometimes they were buried.
Some we struck in the heart and some in the neck. Some we struck haphazard. During
the killings there were no lights in the church, except that some soldiers were specially
appointed to light our way with electric torches. It happened on several occasions that
some Serb rushed us with his fists or kicked us in the stomach, but he was butchered
immediately. There was always much noise during the killing. The Serbs used to shout
proudly "LONG LIVE FATHERLAND SERBIA!", "LONG LIVE SERBIAN PEOPLE!",
"DOWN WITH PAVELICH!", "DOWN WITH THE USTASHIS!", "DOWN WITH CROATIA!"
My unit's task was to round up the Serbs in Glina and in the Glina district, but orders
were also given that all Serbs in the districts of Topusko and Vrgin. Most as well as
Glina should be rounded up and killed. I do not know exactly how many Serbs were
killed, but I have heard it said that about 120 thousand Serbs from the above
mentioned districts have been killed, including children and old people.
I have nothing more to add. These notes have been read out to me, and all my
statements have been correctly written down. I can read and write.
Vatican and Ustashi Croatia
"...The revival of a policy of forcible conversion assumes an even more portentous significance
when one remembers that it occurred with the tacit approval of the Vatican. Had the Vatican
disapproved not a single priest could have taken part in the massacres or forcible conversions
of Orthodox Serbs. A village priest can act only with the approval of minor Hierarchs who
themselves cannot move without the permission of their Bishop, while the Bishop, in his turn,
must act according to the instructions of his Archbishop; the Archbishop only on those of the
Primate; the Primate on the direct instructions of the Vatican. The Vatican is the personal
dominion of the Pope. The Pope being the central pivot of the vast Hierarchical machinery, it
follows that the ultimate responsibility for all members of the clergy‑or, to be more precise, for
the collective action of any given national Hierarchy ‑ rests with him. This cannot be otherwise.
For policies of great import must be submitted to him before their promotion by all Hierarchies
the world over, the Pope being their sole authority. If the responsibility for the monstrous
persecutions of Orthodox Serbs rests with the head of the National Hierarchy‑i.e. Stepinac‑it
has automatically to rest also with the Head of the Universal Church, without whose consent
the Catholic Hierarchy would not have dared to act‑‑i.e. with Pius XII.
Pius Xll could not plead ignorance of what was going on in Croatia by bringing forward the
excuse of the obstacles of war. Communication between Rome and Croatia was as easy and
as free in peace‑time... Political and religious Ustashi leaders came and went between Rome
and Zagreb... Moreover, the Pope knew what was happening in Croatia, not only through the
Hierarchical administrative machinery, which kept him up to date on all Croatian events, but
also through other reliable sources. They were:
(a) The Papal Legate. Pius XII, it should never be forgotten, had a personal
representative in Croatia, whose task was to implement Vatican policy and
coordinate it with that of Pavelich, as well as reporting on religious and
political matters to the Pope himself. The Papal Legate to Croatia was
Mgr. Marcone, who openly blessed the Ustashi publicly gave the Fascist
salute, and encouraged Catholics (e.g. when he went to Mostar) to be
"faithful to the Holy See, which had helped that same people for centuries
against Eastern barbarism"‑that is say, against the Orthodox Church and
the Serbs. Thus, the Pope's official representative openly instigated
religious persecution, as well as praying for victory "under the leadership of
the Head of the State Pavelic," against the Yugoslav National Liberation
Army in 1944 ‑ 5.
(b) Cardinal Tiseran, head of the Holy Congregation of Eastern Churches.
This congregation's specific task was to deal with Eastern Churches.
Cardinal Tiseran received detailed reports of every forcible conversion and
massacre in Croatia. Between April and June, 19 over 100,000 Orthodox
Serbs were massacred; yet Cardinal Tiseran on July 17, 1941, had the
audacity to declare that Archbishop Stepinac would now do a great work
for the development of Catholicism in "the Independent State of
Croatia...where there are such great hopes for the conversion of those who
are not of the true faith."
(c) Ante Pavelich, who, by his representative to the Vatican, through whom
Pius XII sent "special blessing to the Leader (Pavelic)," forwarded regular
reports, at times straight from the Minister of Religions, about the "rapid"
progress of the Catholicization of the New Croatia.
(d) Last but not least, Archbishop Stepinac himself, who in person visited
Pius XII twice, and who supplied His Holiness with figures of the forcible
conversions. In an official document, dated as late as May 8, 1944, His
Eminence Archbishop Stepinac, head of the Catholic Hierarchy, in fact,
informed the Holy Father that to date "244,000 Orthodox Serbs" had been
"converted to the Church of God."
HOLY SEE AND PAVELICH'S CROATIA
It was not without reason that the official Catholic press gave the public to understand that the
Holy See had recognized the new Croatia de facto. Another pontifical measure soon added
significance to the event of Pavelic's ceremonious welcome at the Vatican, usually given only
for the head of a government. The Pope on 13 June (Pavelic's name day, "Antunovo")
designated His Grace, Giuseppe Ramiro Marcone, a Benedictine of the Monte Vergine
congregation and a member of the Roman Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas, to represent him
at the Croatian episcopacy. But in the matter of attributions His Grace, Marcone, singularly
surpassed those of an "apostolic visitor," that being his official title. So, according to the
protocol of the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Zagreb, he was classified, with his secretary,
Masucci, another Benedictine, under the heading: "Delegation of the Holy See," and in official
ceremonies he was placed ahead of the representatives of the Axis, being considered the Dean
of the diplomatic corps. Furthermore, His Grace, Marcone, in his correspondence with the
Ustashi government, called himself "Sancti Sedis Legatus" or "Elegatus," but never "apostolic
The Croat hierarchy, as well as the press, referred to Ramiro Marcone as the Pope's Legate,
giving him the title of "His Excellency," and never specifically mentioned him as the Pope's
observer or envoy to the Croat Catholic Episcopacy. During the ordaining of the new Bishop,
Janko Simrak in Krizevci, on August 18, 1942, "the Pope's legate to the Independent State of
Croatia, Mgr. Ramiro Marcone was present with his secretary. In reporting on the Pontifical
Requiem which was held in Zagreb after the death of Maglione, Secretary of the Vatican, on
August 24, 1944, the "Catholic List" wrote that Mgr. Ramiro Marcone, the delegate of the Holy
See in the Independent State of Croatia,27 was also present. Another article published in the
Christmas issue of the "Katolicki List" mentions again that "the Honorabe Fra. Ramiro
Marcone, was the delegate of the Holy See in Zagreb." In an article on apologetics, which
appeared in the Katolicki List in connection with the "celebration of the name's day of the
honorable legate," it is clearly seen that Mgr. Ramiro Marcone was the "legate of the Holy See
in the Independent State of Croatia.
"Catholic List" wrote how the clero‑Ustashi group looked upon Fra. Marcone, and said the
following in that regard: "This was more than was needed for establishing the recognition de
facto since as the name indicated, it was not conferred by international law, or by any explicit
declaration, but was deducted from an ensemble of facts, which in themselves were amply
significant. His Grace, Stepinac, understood this perfectly when he noted in his journal on
August 3rd, the day the Pope's representative reached Zagreb: 'By this act, the Holy See has
recognized via facti the Independent State of Croatia.'
"Catholic List" also wrote the following regarding Ramiro Marcone's position and mission: "We,
the Croats, see in Fra. Marcone a high diplomatic representative of the Pope, our Holy
Father.... May the Lord bless his sacrificing work, may it bear the richest fruits to the benefit of
the Holy Church and the State of Croatia."
It is natural that such a political introduction given to Fra. Marcone was bound to affect the
Catholic masses in the Fascist Independent State of Croatia, as well as the Ustashi
government. It must have reflected on the religious feelings and political orientation of the
Catholic masses. By interpreting Fra. Marcone's role in such a manner, a conscious and
intentional influence acted on the Catholic masses invoking in them the desire to preserve the
Independent State of Croatia.
In exchange, Pavelic sent two unofficial representatives to the Vatican, Nikola Rusinovic, and
then Erwin Lobkowicz, the Pope's secret chamberlain. Although they had no titles, they were
diplomatic agents, and implicitly recognized as such, since His Grace Canali, the great
manipulator of finances at St. Peter's provided them with Vatican ration tickets, "carta
annonaria", to which all accredited diplomats of the Holy See were entitled. It can thus be
observed that there were close ties between the Vatican and Satellite Croatia, where Giuseppe
Ramiro Marcone remained until the debacle, transmitting instructions from Rome to the
Croatian clergy and episcopacy, principally concerning the conversions of the Orthodox Serbs,
and often traveling from one region to another, where the battle was raging between the
resistants and the Ustashi. The "apostolic visitor" can be seen in the Pavelich's intimate family
circle, looking most paternal and benevolent. The cordiality of these public as well as private
relationships remained untouched by the assassination of the Serbian Orthodox priests, which
continued to multiply.
On May 21st, the same day that the Croat delegation returned triumphant from Rome, the
Orthodox Serbian Bishop of Co. Plaski, Sava Trlaic, was arrested by the Ustashi officer Fra.
Josip Tomlienovic, and his palace pillaged and demolished. He was taken in a truck to Ogulin
with three other priests, Revs. Jasa Stepanov, Milan Raicevic, and Bogolub Gakovic, and also
thirteen Serbian notables. All of them were shut up in a stable, beaten and tortured, and then
taken away to city of Gospic. From there, about Aug. 15th, they were sent away by convoy,
with two thousand Serbs, to the Island of Pag where general "liquidation" took place.
Even in Zagreb, where His Grace Stepinac and the "visitor" Marcone resided, the Serbian
Orthodox Bishop Dositey, was beaten and tortured to such an extent that he became insane.
There were four Serbian Orthodox Bishops with those from Bosnia‑Herzegovina, to which
should be added approximately 171 priests and religious followers, who, like the first Christians,
met the fate of martyrs upon the ruins of their profaned churches. Others were deported to
Serbia. Only those of the mountainous regions, in Krayina (Serbian part of Croatia), controlled
by the Serbian paramilitaries, were able to escape.
The Serbian Orthodox population, thus bereft of the traditional leaders, became an easier prey
for the converters, as well as for the assassins. Massive massacres took place after their death
and torture in the bishoprics of the two martyrs, Sava and Dositey, which served as a prelude to
equally massive conversions. Croatian Catholic clergy was many times behind Ustashi
violence. For example, it happened that Fra. Viktor Gutic was none other than the Ustashi
prefect who had ordered the "liquidation" of many Serbian Orthodox Bishops, like Bishop Platon
of Bania Luka, with all the refinements of cruelty which have, heretofore, been described.
Serbian Orthodox Bishops ‑ Martyrs are:
1) Zagreb metropolitan Dositey Vasic (born in 1877, ordained in 1899,
bishop of Nis in 1913). Interned in Bulgaria during World War I. Elected
first Zagreb metropotitan in 1932, and enthroned in 1933. As the oldest
member of the Holy Synod, he was in charge of Church affairs during the
illness of Patriarch Varnava, and until the election of the new patriarch.
During World War II, he was severely humiliated and maltreated in Zagreb,
and then expelled to Belgrade. In poor health due to his sufferings in
the Independent State of Croatia, he died on January 13, 1945 in the
Belgrade Monastery of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary, and was buried
2) The good white‑haired old man, metropolitan of Bosnia and Sarajevo,
Petar Zimonjic (born 1866, ordained in 1895, metropolitan of Zahumlie and
Herzegovina in 1903, and of Bosnia in 1920), one of the most eminent
Serbian dignitaries, remained with his flock in 1941. He was arrested on
May 12. There are many testimonies of his heroic stand when he faced the
criminals. He was innocently killed that same year. Several versions exist
about his martyrdom in the Independent State of Croatia. The precise
place of his death is not known.
3) The bishop of Karlovac Sava Trlajic (born in 1884, ordained in 1909,
bishop in 1934, bishop of Karlovac since 1938); early in the war he refused
the offer made by the Italian occupiers to move to Belgrade, and remained
with his Orthodox people ‑ underwent many humiliations in the
Independent State of Croatia, and finally ended his life as a martyr. The
place of his grave is still unknown.
4) The bishop of Banja Luka Platon Jovanovic (born in 1874, bishop in
1936, and bishop of Banja Luka in 1939) died a martyr's death in the
Independent State of Croatia, on May 5, 1941, and was thrown into the
Vrbania river. He was later buried in the Orthodox cemetery of Bania Luka.

In the guise of a reply, or rather a challenge, to those who everywhere implored him to
stop the scandalous aid which the Catholic clergy lent to Pavelic's blood‑thirsty regime,
the Vatican made a decision: they named "His Grace" Stepinac head military chaplain
of the Croatian army. It is true that this nomination was made "sine titulo". On the other
hand, the first prelate of Croatia was not obliged to exercise, effectively and personally,
his new functions.
"His Grace" Stepinac announced his promotion to the Ordinariats by such letters as the
following, addressed to the Ordinariat of the Archbishopric of Sarajevo (No. 22/BK/1942
on January 20, 1942):
"I have the honor of informing the honorable Ordinariat that have been made Head
Military Chaplain 'sine titulo' for the Croatian Ustashe army. I have designated as my
substitutes the Rev. Stiepo Vuchetich, military priest of the Croatian Armed Forces, and
Rev. Vilim Cecelia, superior military priest at the Ministry of the Croatian Armed Forces,
and I have given them jurisdiction with the necessary authority endorsed by the Holy
See. You will eventually be given the names of the military chaplains in the territory of
your Ordinariat by the office of the military vicariate at the Ministry of the Croatian Armed
There is one savory detail connected with this affair. Vilim Cecelia, replacing Stepinac as
leading chaplain, with the grade of a Lt. Colonel, was. at the same time Pavelic's
As soon as the new promotion of the Archbishop of Zagreb was made known,
approximately 150 priests applied for voluntary service as chaplains in the criminal
Ustashe army, and even "His Grace" Stepinac's own secretary, Stiepan (Stephen)
Lackovich (now in Los Angeles), was sworn in to one of the units. The official paper,
"Ustasa", reported in its 47th issue of November 22, 1942, as it did in previous issues,
some of the salient acts of these bellicose ecclesiastics and were decorated by Pavelic.
Stepinac, from time to time, honored the leave‑taking of the legionnaires for the front by
his presence. He was accompanied by His Grace Ramiro Marcone, the Vatican's
"apostolic visitor". As can be seen, this prelate had a great conception of his functions
and duties as military chaplain, even "sine titulo." Pavelic had every reason to be
satisfied, and he proclaimed far and wide: "I am convinced that posterity will be grateful
to you Roman Catholic Croatian priests for having inculcated our first soldiers of the
Independent State of Croatia with a wholesome spirit, a high morality and respect for
God, as well as with fearlessness and courage in facing the enemy both within and
without." ("Nova Hrvatska" ‑ "New Croatia", Nov. 26, 1941.)
Stepinac not only showed his warlike attitude when he was with the military Ustashi in
the barracks, but also when he was with the intellectuals taking charge of the
mobilization of the Croats for the cause of the Ustashi Croatian state, where he helped
to encourage and boost their drooping morale. It was, above all, among the members of
the Catholic organization, "Domagoj," that he was the most active.
"His Holiness" Pius XII remained, as always, cordially paternal toward Pavelic's
collaborators: "The Ustashi youth of the crusades, numbering 206, all dressed up in
Ustashi uniforms, had a private audience with the Pope on February 6, 1942, in one of
the most sacred halls of the Vatican. The reporter wrote that 'the most touching moment
was when the youthful Ustashi begged the Pope to bless their "Poglavnik" ("supreme
head"), the Independent State of Croatia, and the Croatian people. Each member
received a medal as a souvenir.' ("Katolicki Tjednik" ‑ "Catholic Weekly", Feb. 15, 1942).
"Nearly half of the 22 concentration camps in the Ustashi Independent State of Croatia,
during WWII were headed by Croatian Roman Catholic clergy..."
USTASHA MOVEMENT WAS PRO‑JEWISH
Contrary to the communist and Zionist stories Ustashe movement was, basically,
formed and led by the Jews and Croatian Jew‑lovers. I had mentioned some of them but I
didn't mention probably one of the most known Ustashi leaders and cutthroats,
Viekoslav Maximilian 'Max' Luburich, who was pure‑blooded Jew. Ante Pavelic's
godfather and deputy, Andria Artukovich, was also married to Jewess. Enough said.
There are no proofs that there was any organised action of Ustashi cutthroat army
against Jewish population in Croatia. Moreover, in the WW2 many Jews escaped from
Serbia to Croatia after nationalist government, led by general Milan Nedic, came to
power in Serbia.

From 1991 to now: New Independent State of Croatia
The third genocide attempt against the Serbs was took place from 1991 ‑ 1995 within the
borders of the internationally recognized Republic of Croatia under the leadership of late
Franjo Tudjman. The present day Croatian State continues the State personality of the
(Ustashi) Independent State of Croatia, as was said unequivocally by Franjo Tudjman at
the first congress of his party, Croatian Democratic Community (HDZ). "The Independent
State of Croatia was an expression of the historical aspirations of the Croatian people for
its own independent State and the recognition of international factors. Accordingly, the
Independent State of Croatia did not represent a mere of the Axis powers, but was a
consequence of certain historical circumstance."
Who was Franjo Tudjman?
In the shortest lines: Doctor Franjo Tudjman was founder of the HDZ (Croatian
Democratic Community) party and was the first president of the new Independent State
of Croatia. 50 years ago he was Tito's (Josip "TITO" Broz was a Jewish communist
dictator in the former Yugoslavia. Another Croatian Jew.) communist general but in 1990
he became the virulent Croatian nationalist. He was invited and has participated in the
solemn opening of Jewish memorial museum in New York City.
Serbs in the Croatian death‑mill... for the third time
The year of 1991. Once again Croats (this time led by F. Tudjman) wish to break away
from Yugoslavia and once again they are supported by International Jewry and
Freemasonry (EU/UN/USA). Unfortunately, they don't want just to break away from
Yugoslavia and form their own independent state... They want also to purge all Serbs
from their (Serbian) lands and make Croatia Serb‑free. On the other hand, Serbs [under
that circumstances] want to append their ancient territories to Serbian state. They are
loyal and wish to live with their brethren in one, common state... The war broke
out... Serbs are in the Croatian death‑mill ‑ for the third time.

On two nights between October 16 to 18 1991, 24 innocent Serbs were slain and burned
in the place called Perusic, near town of Gospic.
The crimes committed in Gospic
By Dr. Zoran Stankovic, pathologist
From October 16 to 18, soldiers wearing camouflage uniforms and masks on their faces
were abducting civilians, mostly Serbs, in Gospic and its surrounding communities, and
taking them to unknown destinations. Later on, the members of the JNA (Yugoslav
People's Army) and the Serbian Territorial Defence [unit from the village of Siroka Kula],
found 24 mostly charred corpses at a place called Kukin Do. Some corpses were
recognized as those of people taken away from Gospic in the above mentioned period.
There were 15 men and 9 women, and 11 corpse s could not be indentified nor was it
possible to detect injuries which had caused their death. All of the identified persons
were Serbs from Gospic, who had disappeared between October 16 to 18, 1991.
Bullet wounds, lashes caused by the blade of mechanical instruments, piercing wounds
caused by the point and blade of mechanical instruments and inward fractures of the
skull caused by the blunt side of mechanical implements were some of the injuries iden
tified. In the case of 18 corpses, it was not possible to establish reliably the exact
number and type of injuries, because some of their parts were missing, while the
corpses were charred...
List of identified victims:
1.U‑S‑2: Branko Stulic, 54 years old, District Court Judge, Gospic.
The victim had been hit by at least six bullets and there was a wound on his neck
which had been inflicted by the blade of a mechanical instrument.

The victim had been hit by at least two bullets.
3.U‑S‑7: Mira Kalanj, an economist from Gospic, mother of two sons.

5.U‑S‑12: Duro Kalanj, 52 years old, Deputy Public Prosecutor, Gospic
The victim had been hit by at least nine bullets. It was not possible to establish

and left thigh was missing due to the activity of rodents and the body was in the
advanced stage of decomposition, frozen and mostly charred.
6.U‑S‑13: Milan Pantelic, employee of the Gospic Hydrometeorological Bureau

the victim had been hit by at least one bullet. A cut overlaying inward fractures of
the bones, which had been inflicted with the blade of a mechanical instrument,

The statement of Milica Smiljanic, wife of the slain Stanko Smilanic
"...They came to get my husband at midnight on 16 October. They barged into the
house armed to the teeth; they were wearing camouflage uniforms and green caps, with
holes for eyes, pulled over their faces. They found us hiding in the cellar and then they
started shooting at the ceiling and shouting:"Get up, you bandits!" I recognized one of
them by his voice. It was Irfan Mataija, a local. They demanded from us to sign a
statement which stated that the Serbs in Croatia were not endangered. We refused to do
so, because it wasn't true. My husband and brother‑in‑law were then ordered to get
dressed. They tied them up and shoved them onto a truck. I was escorted at a gun point
to the house of Radovan Barac, where they demanded that I ask him to come out.
Radovan's mother came out instead. She refused to call her son. They took them both
away. I was visited on the same night by Luka Sulentic, who was one of the first who
had been picked up by the Ustashe; he was released later once it was established that
he was a Croat. Sulentic told me that scores of Serbs had been arrested and taken by
trucks to Smiljan. I spent three months searching for my husband and brother‑in‑law,
Milan. Several times I addressed in person Zelko Bolf, the chief of police in Gospic. I
begged him to find out what had happened to Stanko and Milan. He promissed to make
inquiries and let me know, which he never did. I managed to escape from Gospic thanks
to a Croatian police officer who helped me get an ausweis (a pass), so that I was able to
reach Zagreb, via Karlobag, Sen, Rieka, Delnice and Karlovac. From Zagreb, I went to
Doboi, and from there to Serbia.
Stanko had no [personal] enemies. He never engaged in politics; he didn't belong to any
political party. He simply wasn't interested in such things. Now I now that his only sin
was his Serbian descent..."

Industry of Death ‑ Death Squads go on a rampage through Kraina*
F.T. Feral Tribune, 10/16/95, Split, Croatia
It turns out that the cruel crime in Varivode was only a link in a bloody chain: seven
elderly persons from the village of Gospic, hamlet of Borak, located four kilometers west
from Devrsak, were murdered in the early afternoon hours on 8/27/95. Sava, Marija,
Grozdana, Vasilj, Kosa, Dusan and Milan Borak were, on average, 70 years old.
There are no living creatures left in the hamlet of Borak. Only a strong, unpleasant
stench of the decomposing bodies of dead animals and inside houses old traces serve
as a "reminder" of a drama: blood stains on kitchen tiles, bullet holes in the walls,
opened portion from the humanitarian assistance package on the table, two pairs of
glasses, rotten tomatoes, Slobodna Dalmacija paper from August 26...
"On the day that happened I was taking food to the village", stated for Feral one of the
indirect witnesses, who because of fear wanted to remain anonymous. "I went to
finish some business in the neighboring village and upon my return, about half an hour
later, I found that the elderly inhabitants of the village had been massacred. They had
been shot through their heads. They lay on the thresholds of their houses, sometimes
2‑3 of them together; body of one of the elderly women was in a chair... I was terrified
and frightened... On my way out of the village I passed an all‑terrain vehicle in which
there were people in camouflage uniforms..."
Another witness said that the bodies of the victims had been transported to Knin in two
police helicopters. Allegedly, minister [of internal affairs] Ivan Jarnjak and his deputy
Josko Moric appeared on the spot. However, it is still not known how far the Croatian
police investigation of these crimes has gone and whether the police has continued the
investigation after all. The victims of the crime in Gosic received at least a bit of Christian
respect: they were buried at the Knin cemetery; crosses with numbers 543 to 550 were
placed on their graves.
Feral's reporter was, on Friday, present when the corpse of 84‑year‑old Dusan Saric was
found in Kakanj, a village 4 kilometers from Varivode. His corpse had been floating in a
well located next to his house. Dusan Saric was se en alive for the last time when the
activists from the International Red Cross delivered regular humanitarian assistance on
Kraina stinks of crimes committed by Croatian death squads. In the village of Oton, near
Knin, R.K. (initials arbitrary) is still in a state of shock. He described a tragedy to the
Feral's reporter: Croatian soldiers demanded that he slaughter a calf for them. While he
was doing that, he heard shots from an automatic rifle from a nearby meadow. They
killed his mother. He buried her at the place of the crime. She was born in 1906.
"I was sitting in the kitchen and my son was asleep. Then a four of them barged into the
house. They asked where our identification cards and "domovnice" [a document which
proves Croatian citizenship] were. My son got up and they started to search through the
house; they were pulling out drawers and smashing things. Then one of them picked up
a gun, put the barrel on my son's neck and took him away." This is the testimony of an
elderly woman from the village of Zrmana‑Vrelo. Her 50‑year‑old son was killed in a
nearby forest on 9/29/95 at 5 p.m.; four bullets were fired at his chest. The body was in
the forest for two nights until the investigators arrived. "The locals covered the body and
guarded it lest someone took it away; they also wanted to protect it from animals."
Commander of the former Sector South, Alain Forand has stated that the civilian UN
police had found 128 corpses of the Serb civilians who had been killed after the end of
war operations in Kraina; they gave all the available data to Croatian authorities but
haven't received any information from the authorities regarding the investigations.
Croatian Helsinki Committee (HHO), after checking, branded as false "inaccurate reports
that the Croatian authorities have arrested certain citizens of the Republic of Croatia
because of the committed crimes."
In Croatia, the emphasis this Fall is on the new democratic elections.

Soil soaked with the blood
Above are just a few examples of Croatian crimes against Serbs, comitted during the
civil war (from 1991 to 1995) in the 'former Yugoslavia'. Over 450.000 Serbs have been
banished, forced to leave their ancient territories, their homes and hearths. Serbian army
was victorious on the battlefield. Serbs won the war but the Croats get their
Independent, Serb‑free, state thanks to the treacherous diplomatic policy of the Serbian
socialist regime and thanks to International Jewry.
However, we will never forget. There's no surrender. Lika, Banija, Kordun, Slavonia, West
Srem, Herzegovina etc. are the lands soaked with the Serbian blood... the blood of our
brethren and forefathers. The places like Jasenovac (English spelling ‑ Yasenovaz) are
the eternal Serbian shrines and sanctities. Holy Serbian scaffolds and martyrdoms. OUR
FATHERLAND IS WHERE THE GRAVES OF OUR MARTYRS ARE AND WHERE THE
SOIL IS SOAKED WITHE BLOOD OF OUR KIN. The graves and ghosts of known and
unknown martyrs are weeping for revenge. We can hear
them... One day we will set our
Western provinces free again and will avenge the suffering and deaths of our brothers
and sisters. That is our promise and our oath! In the name of Father, Son and the Holy
