"CROATS HAVE NO SENSE OF
SHAME" said Serbian poet Dučić. How
true! The very Nazi government of today's Croatia stands behind this shameless book (which was
financed from the main bank in Zagreb). The "School book"
shows what kind of "history" are the Croatian children learning in their schools today.
This book is a World Wonder:

The establishment and the first days of Independent State of Croatia.
Delirious of joy,
Croat masses wait for entry
of their Nazi German liberators
Pages 38, 39 (excerpts, quote): To celebrate the first anniversary
of declaring Independent State of Croatia, Zagreb publisher Petar Pekić, published a book in
April 1942 under title "Nastanak NDH" ("The establishment of Independent State of Croatia").
The author [Pekić] was a witness but also a participant of the events. If one is to neglect
the necessary political coloring and a few harsh words, the book still records that what is
most important and what gives historical significance to what happened in Zagreb in those first
days of the independent Croatian state. Here are some excerpts from [Pekić's] book:
Citizens of [Croatian capital] Zagreb woke up in revolutionary spirit on that important
April 10 . With understandable anxiety they anticipated the great events. At the
same time they were waiting for arrival of German soldiers as forecasters of their freedom,
but also for the resolute show of Ustashas, who were present in the city in larger and
larger numbers. And, truly, it happened at the same time. German army, together with Ustasha
units... entered Zagreb at 4 in the afternoon, followed by undescribable celebration of
joy of the Croatian citizens... Zagreb, dressed in Croatian national and German flags was
swimming in an ocean of joy and happiness. Multitudes, waves of people as far as eye could
see covered the streets. Delirious of joy, carried by the whirlwind of delight they screamed
to freedom of their homeland and their great allies Germany and Italy...
[End of Košutić quoting Pekić's book].
[The] undescribable joy of the Croatian people erupted with such power unprecedented in
their entire history. People hugged each other on the streets, kissed each other as tears
of joy washed their faces. Everywhere you could hear patriotic songs. Everywhere the people
celebrated this glorious holiday; the holiday of the kind the Croatian people was not able
to celebrate ever in the past eight centuries. The sudden passage from darkness to sunlight,
the never before felt excitement of joy, the shouts of cheer everywhere - and the best sons
of the people immediately stepped up to service their free and Independent State of Croatia...
The Croatian people with its entire heart and soul engaged in establishing their
love their new Nazi state

Domobrani Cadets marching through Zagreb streets".
The text at the next page (page 149) explains (quote):
Male chorus of (Domobrani) Cadets was, very frequently,
performing under open skies. Mainly at football field HASK.
They were performing chosen march tunes of Croatian
musicians. The seats were taken to the last place. The conductor was Mr. Lovro Matacic.
This famous conductor and musician had a special success with chorus performance, for that
purpose made song: "On to battle"... from Zajc's opera "Nikola Šubić
Zrinski". This performance became a part of famous Saltzburgh music performances. A
music record, by a German music records company, was made for this happy(!) occasion.
Their marches, the chorus was singing while passing through
the town, on its way to the training fields at Gromoščica. Citizens, who knew the times of
the marching chorus would pass by, were waiting crowding the streets. Thanking for the
pleasure that they experienced, they clapped to the future young officers of the Croatian
Domobrani (Ustashi home-guard).

Excerpts from page 167 (quote):
The same day German forces attacked Soviet Union on June
22, 1941, Dr. Ante Pavelić called the military and civilian fuhrer-hood of the
Independent State of Croatia. He explained to them his view of the events. The question
was what Croatia should do in the circumstances. All present, fullheartedly supported the
fight of, as said, advanced forces of Europe against Communist danger that is hanging upon
They agreed. The Independent State of
Croatia should not stay aside in that fight. Even more, in agreement with the government
of the German Reich, we should see to the ways how Croatia can
militarily help its GREAT ally.
Edmund von Hostenau, the representative of the German Army
in Zagreb, was informed about this decision. He not only fully agreed with the decisions,
but suggested that a letter to Fuhrer should be sent - with proposal about Croatian active
participation on the Eastern Front.
Dr. Ante Pavelić did it the next day, June
23, 1941. In his letter The (Croatian) Fuhrer said that he was expressing the wishes of
many Croats to get in the fight against enemies of the FREEDOM-LOVING NATIONS and so give their contribution to the NEW ORDER in Europe.
Adolf Hitler answered to the (Croatian)
fuhrer's letter on July 1st, 1941, welcoming Croatian readiness to join the fight,...
Already on July 2nd, 1941 the (Croatian) fuhrer gave an
Order, both in printed media and on the radio...

Croatian Legionaries, members of 369th army division".
(Translator's notice: A complete order on how the legionary
unit should be formed, is given in the book. Well-bodied, pure blooded Croats, ages 20 to
32 will represent the young country. Only the best will be accepted, ... blah.. blah..
Then the author goes into the details of how, and from what towns the units originated. He
did not forget to mention the music unit... Then,...)

besides German, also Croat symbols: on the helmet, above the left elbow - the emblem of

"The due time for volunteering was

time, 9,000(!!!) candidates, SO MANYFOLD above the decided number volunteered. The
selection had to be more rigorous..."
Glorious Croat SS
Excerpts from page 170:
"The division was very quickly ready for departure to
Germany. There it will get ready for the battlefield. Military leader Mr. Slavko Kvaternik
visited volunteers, before their departure in Varazdin. He wished them, in his own name,
and in the name of the Croatian Fuhrer, good luck and success in the battles ahead of

by Dr. Ante Pavelić himself... During this celebrations, the volunteers gave an oath

Page 170: "Tough and very demanding trip did not pass
without the consequences. Not everyone endured it equally. A few legionaries wondered why
did they volunteered to this almost inhumane effort..."
Page 173 (Photograph subtitle): "The forced march, 750
km long, to the battlefield in Ukraine, was the last check of the physical readiness of
the Croatian legionaries. Some 170 legionaries of the division 369, did not pass that
exhausting exam. They were, thus, returned to the fatherland." (The picture shows
Ustashi SS marching).

battle,... In those, first battles they could not get used to something they simply could
not understand: fast and easy, massive surrender of the Russian soldiers,..."

warmhearted notes of the brave Croatian (Nazi) soldiers to their Clergy in the fatherland,
their diaries about the suffering and bravery sent to their wives, etc., etc. that the
author; Mr. Košutić quotes at length. I'll give you only two sentences:)

Dr. Ante Pavelić came to every soldier and shook hands. Then
he gave a speech where he underlined "THE GREAT MEANING OF THE CROATIAN LEGION IN THE
HISTORY OF THE YOUNG STATE". Then he mentioned the names of all the battles in which,
showing their BRAVERY, the legionaries spread the GLORY of the Croatian people across the
world. He reminded them of all the sacrifices that Croats did in fight for better and more
JUST NEW WORLD ORDER. "And on" he said "We should be that Croatian legion,
which, with its bravery and sacrifice got the ADMIRATION of the world". Especially,
he said, he regrets that he cannot squeeze hand of EVERY legionary. German military
officials, that is, are estimating, that because of the personal security he should not
get closer to the battle lines where the Croats are fighting.
Then, after the speech, the fuhrer gave decorations. First,
he gave the iron cross to the commander of 369 division... ...
At great many places in the book the
author does not hesitate to brag about high quality of Croatian Nazi SS fighters (division
Excerpts from page 178:
During the first year, which division 369 spent in difficult
and exhausting battles in Ukraine, the [Croat SS] division earned
respect among German and other ALLIES, but also - among the enemy. They fought BRAVELY and
with GREAT DISCIPLINE and success. Croatian Legionaries, ALONE, captured some 4,518
Russian soldiers in those battles. Among them there was one general and one high party
official. Huge quantities of heavy and light weaponry and ammunition, food and other
military equipment were left by Soviet troops that were withdrawing defeated by Croatian
legionaries. Members of Croatian legion, very frequently, could not accept all that
military material. Thus, lots of it was left abandoned or was simply destroyed.
But, in a a war - both sides are shooting. German
superiority in arms and military readiness, Soviets were covering with multitude in
page 227: (One of the Croatian Nazi officers writes a
report what are) "in his opinion, the real reasons for
German-Croat failure at Stalingrad, and also wants to take responsibility off the Croats,
who are, otherwise, proven as BRAVE, DEVOTED FIGHTERS but are now,
obviously, facing TRAGIC end to their participation on the Eastern
Front." - says the author of the book - and then quotes the report full of
bravery and suffering of the SS Croat fighters.
One of the brave Ustashi commanders was officer Marko Mesić, (shown on page 229) uncle of the last President of
"Yugoslavia as we used to know it". Mr. Stipe Mesić was imposed to the position
of President of the Presidency of collapsing Federal Yugoslavia (in 1991). The European
Community insisted on it - in the name of "stabilization of the crisis".
The author then goes on to show Croatian contribution to the fascist Italians (on page 249). The Italians
fascists were upset that Croats are volunteering to fight for Nazi Germans but not for
Italians... But Croats were always good collborationists and they oblige to fight in
Italian uniforms but under their own flag.
The last chapter which takes less than one tenth of the
entire book starts at page 257. The author gave it the title:
BANDITRY, MUTINY, UPRISING
The author expresses his shock at the similarity between
the events in 1941 and in 1991. He says that even the same "Crisis Areas" were
involved - those with majority Serbian population.
Photograph on page 269 shows a broken railroad track with a
huge rock on it also. The caption translates: "REBEL diversion on the railroad track Gracac-Knin, summer 1941."
Hey, history is repeating itself to the
smallest details: Croats are (once again) supporting an advanced New World Order (fascism)
and the local Serbs are again: rebels. "Serbische banditen" as German Nazi would
then (and now) call them.
Croatian no-backbone politicians always knew which way to
take the Croatian people (which as a rule follow them - en masse):
1) During WWII the Croats were the bravest (acording to this
book), the most gruesome Nazi (acording to the rest of the world).
2) During the Communist times they were the best (the most
cruel), Communists. For decades Yugoslavia was under strict control of Tito, a Croat...

translates: "Ruins left after rebel atrocities".

And more: Photograph on page 292 shows a broken bridge in
Foca (Bosnia). The caption translates: "Destroyed bridge in
Foca. Foca was LIBERATED in mid
1942 by Croatian armed forces!!!"
AND (in 300 pages) NOT ONE WORD ABOUT USTASHI ATROCITIES!
REVIEW (by P. Makara):
There you have it: Anti-fascist fighters are - rebels.
Fascists are nice, brave people who, from time to time had to liberate towns from rebel
Serbs. Just like today. According to fascist Western press.
WHAT A GREAT BOOK!!! Just look at this official book of the
Croat government and compare these photographs of Nazi Croats in WWII and uniforms of
fighters of "democratic Croatia" from an "unbiased" Western newspaper
(like New York Times). Compare the flags... Would you find a difference? No chance!
WHAT A GREAT BOOK!!! I hope Germans will also collect
courage and raise their flag with swastika and make school books about their bravery and
humanism in WWII.
Who cares about history in the Western world? In American
English it is a dirty word used only (but every night) when someone is (on the TV screen
or in real life) is to "waste someone", "ditch him/her" or "blow
his/her brains out". The murderer will then utter the phrase: YOU ARE HISTORY!
German Nazi had to burn books. (People used to read books
then). Now, there is no need. Everyone is watching TV. No-one is reading OLD books. (New
books are, as we see, made to fit the current political correctness. It is OK to praise
"democracy" of Nazi Croats and it is OK to bash Serbs...)
But I have to mention, once again, a few experts from old,
respectable (not burned yet) sources you can find in the local library.
This is what the Croat author (who admits to have been
member of Nazi Croat units during WWII) "forgot" to mention: Croats were the worst Nazi the world had known.
