VIDEO: Independent State of Croatia: Fear, Abyss, Silence

Величина слова: A- A+


How did the Independent State of Croatia come to be, what was its character and who decided on life and death? Why was the Slana Camp on the island of Pag named “the hell in a rocky desert”, how were numerous karst pits on Mount Velebit used in the summer of 1941, why there were no children on Mount Kozara years after the Second World War, and whether the strongest impression is from the “mountain of dead in the plains of Slavonia”, the name some people gave to Jasenovac? These are the questions that a three-part documentary film of the Radio and Television of Serbia (RTS) “Independent State of Croatia – Fear”, “Independent State of Croatia – Abyss” and “Independent State of Croatia – Silence” deals with.

A RTS team visited the location of the former Jadovno Camp on the Velebit, Slana Camp, Jasenovac Memorial Area in Croatia and Donja Gradina in Bosnia and Herzegovina, i.e. the Republic of Srpska, as well as the Memorial Museum “Yad Vashem” in Jerusalem, world’s most famous institution dealing with Holocaust research. The film also talks about the role of the Roman Catholic Church and Archbishop of Zagreb Alojzije Stepinac, about the attitude of the socialist Yugoslavia towards the events from the Second World War, about the attitude towards the NDH today, about numbers, and about in what way we should remember the victims of the NDH.
