Peron set up a “Nazi Rescue Office” in Argentina which supplied, armed, trained and financed the escape of Nazi war criminals world wide. Officials of this tight knit criminal syndicate were Reinhard Kops a Nazi Spy and aide to a Bishop Hudal and employed by Peron’s Nazi rescue office in genoa; Herbert Helfrich a Nazi scientist hired by Peron and then sent back to Europe to smuggle other nazis out of Germany. He worked from Peron’s Nazi rescue office in Berne, Switzerland. Rene Lagrou a Belgian war criminal and the founder of the Flemish SS. Lagroup escaped to Argentina where he was hired by Peron’s Information bureau. He was a founding member of the SARE escape organization.

June 2, 1941, in Nova Grarfiska, Dr. Milovan Zanic (d. in Italy, 1946. Source: Tko je tko u ndh), Minister of Justice, declared:
This State, our country, is only for the Croats, and not for anyone else. There are no ways and means which we Croats will not use to make our country truly ours, and to clean it of all Orthodox Serbs. All those who came into our country 300 years ago must disappear. We do not hide this our intention. It is the policy of our State, and during its promotion we shall do nothing else but follow the principles of the Ustashi.
Nazi Dr. Hermann Neubacher calculates:
“A third must become Catholic, a third must leave the country, and a third must die!” This last point of their program was accomplished. When prominent Ustasha leaders claimed that they slaughtered a million Serbs, that is, in my opinion, a boastful exaggeration. On the basis of the reports submitted to me, I believe that the number of defenseless victims slaughtered to be three quarters of a million. (Neubacher, Dr. Hermann. Special Assignment in the Southeast, p. 18-30.)Sonderaufrag Sudost 1940-1945, Bericht eines fliegenden Diplomaten, Gottingen, 1956: 18-31)
Italian generals, who were more overwhelmed by the atrocious Ustase slaughter, also reported similar figures to their commanders. The Vatican’s sources also speak of similar figures, that is, for an example, of 350,000 Serbs slaughtered by the end of 1942 (*criminal Eugen Tisserant) and “over 500,000 people” in all (Godfried Danneels.)

In the end they were released early and last prisoners were released in 1952, one of them died in prison.
Yugoslavia: Nazis, Ustase, Croatia, NDH
This is a clear indication of the negative attitude of great majority of the Croats towards Fascism. On the other hand, in 1941 the Serbian Fascist Party has been founded in Belgrade by Dimitrije Ljotic d.1945, the principal Fascist ideologist of Serbia, Nedic’s second in command. The Serbian government under General Milan Nedic, a close collaborator of the Nazi officials, proclaimed Belgrade to be the first “Judenfrei” city in Europe (see [Cohen] in Helsinki or Cohen’s important book for more details). Belgrade was the only European capital that had concentration camps exclusively for Jews (Sajmiste and Bannica), see e.g. [Pecaric]. There are no holocaust memorial tablets in Belgrade, as is the case in the similar camps elsewhere in Europe. It is estimated that the number of victims is comparable to that in the Jasenovac camp. (I’m not sure this is factually correct. Do they mean “Jewish victims”? ).
Mihailo Olćan (Serbian: Михаило Олћан) (1894 in Crepaja, Austria-Hungary – 1961 in Australia) was a Serbian soldier and fascist politician. He escaped.
Milan Nedić (Serbian Cyrillic Милан Недић) (September 2, 1877 – February 4, 1946) was a Serbian general and politician, he was the chief of the general staff of the Yugoslav Army, minister of Economy in collaborationist regime. ** The present day Serbs are trying to rehabiliate this monster.)

In 1968, Djozo stirred a controversy in Yugoslavia after he supported former Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj-Amin el-Husseini, an old friend from his ‘Handschar’ old days, “jihad calling” against Israel during a Muslim cleric’s congress in Cairo. Even he promised that Muslim religious community of Yugoslavia would recruit volunteers from its ranks and contributed money for the sake of Palestinian struggle.

On a positive note, *the Bishop of Mostar protested the Ustashe.
Les estimations approximatives varient entre 300.000 et 700.000. Si le chiffre de 35.000 Juifs et de 25.000 Tziganes n’est pas contesté, le nombre de victimes serbes est depuis plusieurs décades l’objet de manipulations politiques, car en réduisant la dimension de l’holocauste serbe on tend soit à le démentir complètement soit à le minimiser et à le placer au rang des vengeances qui ont été faites sur les musulmans en Bosnie orientale et des fusillades en masse d’Oustachis capturés, à la fin de la guerre. Robert Fisk a récemment souligné que le nettoyage ethnique des Serbes en Bosnie avait des dimensions colossales et qu’il avait personnellement eu l’occasion aux archives de Banja Luka de lire plusieurs dizaines de milliers de dossiers d’origine oustachie.

In a telegram sent to the US Embassy in Rome, the Secretary of State of Pope Pius XII guarantees the »good character« of several Ustashi officials (at that time held by the allied military authorities), and asks that they should not be handed over to the Yugoslav authorities. The US Embassy noted that the Vatican’s Secretariat of State, under the direct responsibility of Cardinal Montini, exerted pressure to **prevent the extradition of Ustashi criminals to Yugoslavia, where they would have been tried.
In no part of occupied Europe in World War II were so many churches and monasteries destroyed as in the Ustashi »state«. The genocide against the Serbian people was accompanied by the destruction of their historic heritage (…) in order to destroy the Serbian national being in a given area, to obliterate and exterminate their historic existence and self-identity, their roots, their strength and beauty. — It was — a total genocide.
On the territory of the Ustashi »state« — in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Srem — over 450 Orthodox churches were destroyed.
The number of victims at the Jasenovac and other camps has been estimated with figures ranging from 20,000, from the now-deceased first president of the new Independent Croatia who served as an Ustasha in World War II, to up to one million, with an 840,000 figure coming from a surviving inmate of Jasenovac, Lazar Jankov, who testified, “… I found out that 840,000 men, women and children killed had gone through the books,” and the most commonly cited figures of 700,000 or 750,000 from German officials who were in Croatia as part of the occupying forces.
The Croatian State Commission, while acknowledging that too many documents had been destroyed to establish an exact number, reported: “[S]ome 50 mass crimes [were] committed by the Ustashas in Jasenovac, and if we add the number of victims killed in these slaughters to the prisoners killed individually, we will reach the number of some 500-600,000… . There was not a single criminal in the whole history of humankind who had one tenth of a nation slaughtered, as Ante Pavelić did with his own people.”
John Cornwell, a research fellow at Jesuit College and devout Catholic who studied Vatican archives reports in “Hitler’s Pope“, “Ustashe leadership embarked on their massacres with a cruel and haphazard barbarism that has few parallels in history…. Priests, invariably Franciscans, took a leading part in the massacres. Many went around routinely armed and performed their murderous acts with zeal … . Individual Franciscans killed, set fire to homes, sacked villages, and laid waste the Bosnian countryside at the head of Ustashe bands.” (Penguin Books, New York, 1999: 249-254)
October 9, 1942, still early in the war, Commander-in-Chief of all Croatian camps Vjekoslav Luburić [see above] announced at a banquet, “We have slaughtered here at Jasenovac more people than the Ottoman Empire was able to do during its occupation of Europe.” (Qtd. in Genocide in Satellite Croatia: 1941-1945, by Professor Edmond Paris, 1961: 132)
The American Catholic Professor Edmond Paris, in Genocide in Satellite Croatia: 1941-1945, writes, “The greatest genocide during World War II, in proportion to a nation’s population, took place, not in Nazi Germany but in the Nazi-created puppet state of Croatia. There, in the years 1941-1945, some 750,000 Serbs, 60,000 Jews and 26,000 Gypsies—men, women and children—perished in a gigantic holocaust. These are the figures used by most foreign authors, especially Germans, who were in the best position to know….

To prove it was not all part of a smear campaign, here’s a quote from
Reinhard Heydrich, the deputy commander of the SS after Himmler and organizer of the Wannsee Conference where the decision was “final solution” to the Jewish problem stated on 17 February 1942 in a letter to Heinrich Himmler:
“The number of Slavs massacred by the Croats in the most sadistic can be estimated at around about 300,000. It is clear that the status of Serb-Croat tension is caused by hatred of the Catholic Church to the Orthodox Church. ”
Archbishop Stepinac was summoned to Rome in April 1942, where he delivered a nine-page document detailing various misdeeds of Pavelić. This document described the atrocities as “anomalies” that were either unknown or unauthorized by Pavelić himself; it is omitted from the ADSS. However, by 1942 the Vatican “preferred to have Stepinac try to rein the fascists in rather than risk the effect that a papal denunciation would have on the unstable Croatian state”.
According to Catholic novelist Evelyn Waugh (who visited Croatia after the war), “the task of the partisans was made easier in that the clergy as a whole had undoubtedly compromised the church by tolerating the pro-Axis Ustashis, if not actively collaborating with them”.
According to Eugene Tisserant, the future Dean of the College of Cardinals, “we have the list of all clergymen who participated in these atrocities and we shall punish them at the right time to cleanse our conscience of the stain with which they spotted us”. Pius XII was well-informed of the involvement of Croatian Catholic clergy with the Ustaša regime, but decided against condemning the regime or even taking action against the involved clergy, who had “joined in the slaughter”, fearing that it would lead to schism in the Croatian church or undermine the formation of a future Croatian state.

Description of the camp Stara Gradiska:
Penitentiary / prison in Stara Gradiska, which operates almost continuously of 1799. when imprisoned in the fortress of the French prisoners of war, transformed into a concentration camp in mid-February 1942. year.  The camp was guarded Nazi puppet Ustasha regime. The inmates were killed with firearms, hammers and knives. And Orthodox Jewish women with poor or little children, residents of “Towers”, have been starved and tortured in “Hotel Gagra” basement that **Nikola Gagro used as a place of torture.  The other prisoners were killed by gas.
Experiments with gas were initially carried out by veterinary stables close to the “economy”, where horses were first killed and then people poisons (sulfur dioxide and cyclone B).  Experiments were carried out gassing and against children. Sergeant **Anthony Vrban nadgledavao the effects of poison.  According to estimates, thousands of children Tannery was killed by gas in May 1942nd, and then another 2,000 in June 1942.    Later, the number of children killed fell to 400-600.   During the trial, Vrban admitted that poor children killed by zyclon B. [he was executed 1945).
Cijordana Friedlender witness testified about the camp: 
At that time, fresh women and children arrived in the camp of Stara Gradiska. Approximately 14 days later, Vrban [camp commander] ordered that all children separated from their mothers and put in one room. Ten of us had received orders to take them there in blankets. Children crawl on the floor of the room, a child put her hand and foot through the door, so that they can not quit. Vrban the zaderao: ‘Push it!’ When I did not do, he banged the door and crushed dijetetovu leg. Then he grabbed the child’s legs and slammed it against the wall until he was dead. After that we continued to carry children. When the room was full, Vrban sent in gas and killed them all.
Milka Zabičić witness claims that the gassing stopped due to the announced visit of a delegation of the Red Cross 1943rd, but it arrived only in June 1944.  have been made special trucks to murder Jewish women and children who came from the camp in Đakovo 1942. Witness Šimo Klaić claims that the truck had no tail pipe connected the chamber with the prisoners. ***Dinko Sakic repeatedly drove a truck.  (d. 2008, Croatian prison).
In the basement of the 3 “Hotel Gagro,” prisoners were starved, tortured and then strangled with wire. 
**Anthony Vrban (executed Yugoslav), Nada Luburic Sakic (WIFE OF Dinko Sakic, now living in Croatia), *(NAMED BELOW) Maja Buzdon-Slomic (EXECUTED), **Joe Stojčić (FATE UNKNOWN)and Miroslav Filipovic-Majstorovic (dead)were the voice of the cruelest guards of the camp.

her husband * Mirko Slomic? Stomic? (executed) while in Yugoslav captivity. They both served in Nova Gradiska KZL.
From early 1942 to the autumn of 1944, Dinko Sakic was a deputy commander and commander of two concentration camps — Jasenovac, where some 85,000 died, and Stara Gradiska. According to Jewish and Serbian groups, he was involved in the killing of tens of thousands of Serbs, Jews, Gypsies and communist partisans, often taking part in the clubbing, shooting and stabbing of bound prisoners.
One of Sakic’s most notorious acts, camp survivors say, took place in the summer of 1942 when the Ustashe closed the Djakovo camp, which held Jewish woman and children. Some 1,500 prisoners were crammed into railroad cars and transported to Stara Gradiska, where Sakic met them with two large police vans, witnesses said.
“He directed his guards to pack women and children into the vans, fitted a rubber hose from the exhaust to the interior and drove around and around the camp until the passengers were dead,” said Dr. Dragutin Roller, 76, who was a camp inmate. “They killed at least half the group like this as soon as they arrived.”
There are many accounts of Sakic, seemingly on a whim, pulling out a pistol and shooting prisoners. He and several guards, former inmates say, often used rifles to shoot for sport prisoners who were sent out to work in the surrounding fields.

Colonel Vladimir Kren, an active fanatic. Executed 1948.
As early as 1939 Macek had, in fact, established contact with Mussolini, who had agreed to pay him 20 million diners to finance his bold Separatist plot—that is, to destroy Yugoslavia in order to set up a Catholic Fascist State of Croatia, as was subsequently disclosed by none other than the Italian Fascist Foreign Minister, Count Ciano.
Most of them were affiliated with Catholic organizations under the direct supervision of Catholic Action, which was strictly controlled by the Catholic Hierarchy—e.g. the Brotherhood of the Crusaders, with about 540 societies and 30,000 members; the Sisterhood of the Crusaders, with 452 societies and 19,000 members; the Catholic Student Associations, Domagoj, and such like.
The Catholic Church, represented by the Hierarchy and the Catholic Press, following Stepinac’s example, promptly initiated a feverish campaign of praise for Pavelic and Hitler. A leader of the Crusaders wrote:
“God, who directs the destiny of nations and controls the hearts of Kings, has given us Ante Pavelic and moved the leader of a friendly and allied people, Adolf Hitler, to use his victorious troops to disperse our oppressors and enable us to create an Independent State of Croatia. Glory be to God, our gratitude to Adolph Hitler, and infinite loyalty to chief Ante Pavelic.”
A few days later, on April 28, 1941, Stepinac issued a pastoral letter, asking the whole Croatian clergy to support and defend the New Catholic State of Croatia.
This last move, like numerous others of a more tyrannical character, was followed with fascination by the Vatican, where the murderer of King Alexander came to be regarded as a great Catholic hero, blessed by none other than Pope Pius Xll himself, who bestowed his paternal protection upon him and the New Croatian State.
It was the epitomization of a policy, coolly planned by Pavelic in concert with the Catholic Hierarchy, which was set in motion immediately when the Nazis invaded Yugoslavia. Dr. Milovan Zanic, Dr. Mirko Puk, Dr. Victor Gutic, Ustashi Ministers, unhesitatingly declared that the New Croatia would get rid of all the Serbs in its midst, in order to become 100 per cent Catholic “within ten years.”
The mobile court extraordinary of Zagreb, headed by Ivan Vidnjevic, sentenced to death 2,500 citizens.
Ljubo Milos, Commandant of the Jasenovac concentration camp, “that all sentenced to three years, or not sentenced at all, were to be liquidated at once.”(executed)
In the Jasenovac camp, in the summer of 1942, about 66,000 Orthodox Serbs, brought from the villages of the Bosnian Marches, were slaughtered, including 2,000 children.[my note: since the camp lasted until it was liberated by the Red Army in April 1945, it supports the hundreds of thousands of victims number.]
In 1942 there were some 24,000 children in the Jasenovac camp alone, 12,000 of whom were cold-bloodedly murdered. A very large portion of the remainder, having subsequently been released following pressure by the International Red Cross, perished wholesale from intense debilitation. One hundred of these infants, aged up to twelve months, for instance, died after release from the camp because of the addition of caustic soda to their food.
Dr. Katicic, Chairman of the Red Cross, shocked by these mass murders, lodged the strongest protest, threatening to denounce to the world this mass slaughter of infants. As a reply, Ante Pavelic had Dr. Katicic flung into the concentration camp of Stara Gradiska.

Brother Tugomire Soldo, organizer of the great massacre of the Serbs in 1941;
Fr. Tugomir (Jakov) Soldo was born on January 3, 1911 in Dragicina, Herzegovina. After he completed grammar school in Cerno, he attended the Franciscan seminary in Široki Brijeg. He entered the Franciscan Order on August 3, 1929 at Humac. He studied philosophy and theology in Mostar and Rome where he was ordained on July 28, 1935. After his ordination he served in many parishes, notably in Capljina (1939-1944). After the war he fled to Hungary in 1947, then to Austria and then to Italy where he served as spiritual director for the students in the seminary at Grottamare and Rome. He came to America in June of 1952. He first worked at the Franciscan printery in Chicago, and then he took care of Croatian immigrants in various Croatian parishes. He was killed in a car accident on May 17, 1965 near Toledo, Ohio. He was buried on June 20 at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Chicago alongside his recently deceased cousin, Bro. Alojzije.
Dzafer Kulenovic d 1956, Ustashi Deputy Prime Minister, Bosnian Muslim, died in Damascus.
1941, Bozidar Cerovski, chief of the Ustashi police in Zagreb, (dead?_)
Some Ustashi did not hesitate to crucify their victims. To mention only two victims: Luke Avramovitch, former member of Parliament, and his son, who were both crucified and then burnt in their own home in Mliniste, in the district of Glamoc.
Such atrocities occurred with a frequency that shocked even the Ustashi’s ideological allies: the Italian Fascists and the German Nazis. This to such an extent that on more than one occasion both the Italian and German authorities not only deprived the Ustashi of the command of whole regions, but actually ousted them altogether, replacing them with Italian or German troops, to prevent a repetition of the terrible individual and mass murders committed by Pavelic’s Catholic units.
The Italian Fascist authorities were so shocked by such incredible cruelty that, in addition to dispatching their troops to protect the surviving population and occupying the region of Lijevno and neighbouring places, they dispersed the Ustashi and sent a protest to Zagreb. The magnitude of the butchery can best be gauged by the fact that within the first three months, from April to June, 1941, **120,000 people perished thus.
Catholic priest, Kerubin Segvic claimed Croats were Goths, not Slavs.
The Catholic Press preached Catholic Nazism on the model of that planted in Slovakia by the Catholic Nazi dictator priest, Mgr. Tiso. (slovakia)
The chief Catholic daily, Hrvatska Straza, the editor of which, Dr. Janko Shimrak, became a bishop under Pavelic, openly and consistently praised Hitler’s successes in domestic and foreign policy.The Ustashi paper, Hrvatski Narod, on July 4, 1941, hailed the Franciscan priest Dr. Radoslav Glavas (dead, 1945) as a great organizer of the Ustashi.
The active participation of so many Catholic leaders and Catholic clergy in the formation of the Ustashi State of Croatia had been possible only thanks to one thing: the consent of, and indeed instructions from, the leaders of the Catholic Hierarchy. This was proved from the very first by the incontrovertible fact that high and low clergy cooperated whole-heartedly with Pavelic. Catholic parishes, as well as Catholic Cathedrals, and, indeed, the very radio, were used as a political platform for Pavelic and the Ustashi.
Canon Ivan Mikan. On that same day, in a public speech, Canon Mikan foretold the shape of things to come: “There will be purges,” shouted priest Mikan. “Yes, there will be purges.” The priest Anton Djuric kept a dairy of his activities as an Ustashi functionary. The diary shows that on his orders the Ustashi plundered and burned the village of Segestin, where 150 Serbs were murdered, and that in the village of Goricka he arrested 117 people, who were sent to a concentration camp, where most of them were killed.
Pavelic’s New Ustashi State, in fact, between April, 1941, and the spring of 1945, thanks to Ustashi units, Ustashi police, and concentration camps, murdered at least **850,000 members of the Orthodox Church and citizens of Yugoslavia, including numerous Croats (plus 30,000 Jews and 40,000 Gypsies), perished thus.  Hundreds of Catholic priests and Catholic friars contributed, either directly or indirectly, to this colossal massacre.
(Note) It says that 45,000 Jews lived in Croatia, of whom at least 30,000 were killed. A certain number had been killed by the Nazis or sent to Auschwitz to be killed.
Note: The Catholic Church has kept its archives on what occurred during the war SEALED.
continued: “Some priests, to their credit, protested openly, declaring that such instructions did not harmonize with the spirit of Christian teaching. Their bishops brought pressure upon them, to compel them to carry out the policy of forcible conversions. This was testified by none less than Bishop Aksamovic’s chaplain, Dr. Djuka Maric, at a hearing before Yugoslav authorities:
I and my friend and colleague, Stjepan Bogutovac,” said the chaplain, “were forced by our Bishop, Aksamovic, to go as missionaries to the Orthodox towns of Paucje and Cenkovo and to perform there the rituals of re-Christening all the inhabitants within a week’s time.”
The result was that, in the Bishopric of Djakovo, under the personal leadership of Bishop Aksamovic, there took place one of the biggest mass-conversions of Orthodox in the whole of Croatia.”
The task of the holy triumvirate? To promote the policy of the forcible conversions, in conjunction with the Ustashi Minister of Justice and Religion. The names of the Members of the Committee need no comment: the Bishop of Senj, the Apostolic Administrator, Dr. Janko Simrak, and the Archbishop of Zagreb, Mgr. Stepinac (tried by Yugoslavs, given an abbreviated sentence).
The list of its five members is significant: Dr. Franjo Hermann, Professor of the Theological Faculty of Zagreb; Dr. Augustin Juretitch (Juretic), Adviser to the Conference of the Catholic Bishops; Dr. Janko Kalaj, Professor of Religious Education; Dr. Krunoslav Draganovitch (draganovic), Professor of the Theological Faculty of Zagreb; and Mgr. Nikola Boritch (Boric), director of the Administration of the Archbishopric of Zagreb.
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 to 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.
Cardinal Eugene? Tiseran, head of the Holy Congregation of Eastern Churches.
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.”
It was noted that Archbishop Stepinac did save some Jews, and did criticize the camp -system in Croatian NDH.
Petar Brzica received a watch of gold , dishes of silver , a feast consisting of roast pork and wine, among other things, as a reward for winning the “contest”.  He escaped to the United States after the war, but missed track about your whereabouts in the 1970’s , so he could never be prosecuted for his crimes.

Croatia decided that “there was not enough evidence” to prosecte Nada Luburic Sakic, who lives now in that country.
Following description of Luburic is found in an SD (Sicherheitsdienst, the German Security Service) report from 1943 entitled “The Ustashi Leadership”:
“Luburic, Maks. Ustasi Major (bojnik). Zagreb. From 1928 to 1941 was an émigré. Founder and first commander of concentration camps in Croatia. At his order, 80,000 were liquidated in Stara Gradiska, 120,000 in Jasenovac, and 20,000 in other camps. Luburic personnaly took part in massacres; an extreme sadist, mentally ill, a pathological type. An obedient and pliable tool of the Poglavnik Pavelic. Politically active. Moving force behind bloody attacks in Croatia.” Assassinated in Spain.
And not only that. Nada (Esperanza) Luburic [sakic] herself is accused of committing atrocities in Jasenovac. I quote from the book “Genocide in Satellite Croatia 1941 – 1945” by Edmond Paris (The American Institute for Balkan Affairs, Chicago, 1961 & 1962):

NEW: Places of mass execution were found all over the Jasenovac camp. Most are located on the right bank of the Sava Dubica downstream, especially in the village of Gradina. According to forensic science research, more than 300,000 people were killed here.
The number of victims of Jasenovac to this day the subject of scientific and political debate.
