The victims of Jasenovac camp

The essence of the Ustasha movement and its policies in the so-called Independent State of Croatia was embodied in the foundation of Jasenovac Concentration Camp.

Jasenovac was a camp of death and a camp of mass crime.

The Ustasha camps were founded for the extermination of certain nationalities, religious groups and ideological enemies of the Ustasha policies of genocide and terror.

The Jasenovac Ustasha crimes were inflicted on tens of thousands of Serbs, Roma, Jews, Croats, Muslims, Slovenes, Slovaks, Czechs, Ukrainians, Ruthenians, Italians, Germans, Montenegrins, Hungarians, Poles, and Romanians.

They were men, women and children.

They were killed using knives, wooden mallets or axes, or died of thirst or starvation.

Their disappearance, suffering and survival are a cry of human warning: Never again!

It is a crime to kill or persecute even one human being, just because he is of a different religion, nation, race or ideological persuasion.
