Abstract:

Ca. 7,000-8,000 Jews, out of 12.200 who lived in Zagreb before World War II, perished under the pro-Nazi Ustaša regime. Gives a brief history of the Holocaust in Europe. Describes pre-World War II antisemitism in Croatia, and in particular in Zagreb. The establishment of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) in April 1941 initiated a wave of anti-Jewish measures, including looting of Jewish property and eviction of Jews from their homes. At the end of May 1941 mass arrests of Jews began in Zagreb; they were interned in the camps Gospić, Koprivnica, Jasenovac (in which 4,000-4,500 Jews from Zagreb perished), and others. In the two deportations in August 1942 and May 1943, all but 800 "privileged" Jews of Zagreb were deported to death camps. Dwells on the exemption that the government made for some Jews (mainly baptized); there were some baptized Jews in the Ustaša movement, even in administrative positions. Relates ways in which Jews tried to save themselves (e.g. baptism, flight to the Italian-controlled areas, joining Tito's partisans). Criticizes Archbishop Stepinac who failed to condemn the crimes of the Ustasa regime. Argues that the main responsibility for the genocide of Croatian Jews lies on Eugen Dido Kvaternik, Ante Pavelić, and Vjekoslav Maks Luburić.
