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."
"Genocide in Satellite Croatia, 1941-1945"
Professor Edmond Paris,
Chicago, 1961, Introduction to the book.
"Nonpartisan sources agree that mass genocide was authorized by
the state of Croatia. They concur that the state instigated, planned,
and executed massacres against the Serbian Orthodox minority...
and that the Catholic clergy approved, led, or failed to denounce
"Accounting for Genocide"
Professor Helen Fein,
The Free Press, New York 1979,
"THE VATICAN'S HOLOCAUST is not a misnomer, an accusation,
and even less a speculation. It is an historical fact. Rabid
nationalism and religious dogmatism were its two main ingredients.
During the existence of Croatia as an independent Catholic State,
over 700,000 men, women and children perished. Many were executed,
tortured, died of starvation, buried alive, or were burned to
death. Hundreds were forced to become Catholic. Catholic padres
ran concentration camps; Catholic priests were officers of the
military corps which committed such atrocities."

Preface to the American Editions
The West whitewashes Vatican's WWII crimes
Why was Great Britain supporting the Croat Communist Tito
The author of the attached analysis wanted to remain anonymous.
He is a Serb born in the United States. His message to fellow Serbs
The Holocaust the Serbian people suffered during World
War II is one of the most astonishing but also one of
the most carefully kept secrets of the twentieth century.
There is a good reason for this. What we must
understand is that the West hostility against the Serbs was
driven primarily by the Cold War imperative to maintain
an image of moral superiority over the Russians. They could
not do that if the Serbian Holocaust was known
To the Editor of
I write this letter in response to the "Open Letter to
My Serbian Friends" by Curtis Diles, which appeared
in the Sept. 3, 2003 issue of the Srbobran. Mr. Diles was
one of the hundreds of US Army Air Force men rescued by the
Serbian Chetnik forces of Gen. Draza Mihajlovic. The letter
is an honest and heartfelt account of his experience with
the Serbs in World War II and his thoughts about what happen to
Serbia in the larger context of his rescue.
In particular he made two important, perhaps decisive
observations about the war and post war history of Yugoslavia
and Serbia. The first observation was " … for sixty
years... everything negative happening in the Balkans was
to be blamed on the Serbs and all positive things attributed
to others. The second was "I have yet to hear a rational
explanation as to why our government abandoned the Serbians
or neglected to intervene in the trial (of Draza Mihajlovic).
If I may paraphrase Mr. Diles’s first observation, there
has been a conscious Western (US/UK/Western Europe) hostility
to all things Serb since the middle of WWII to the present day,
hour, minute, and second. The reason for this hostility is
tied to the second observation of Mr. Diles. He is right in
that there has not been a rational explanation of the abandonment
and betrayal of the Serbian Orthodox resistance in WWII Yugoslavia.
Rebecca West, regarded by many as the greatest English woman
writer of the 20th century said in a television
interview shortly before her death "historians are liars".
When she made that quote, she was speaking in the context of the
history of WWII Yugoslavia about which she was very well informed.
And no history has been lied about so much as that of Serbia
and Yugoslavia since World War II. Even the Nazis, the Soviets, the
Iraqis or Palestinians have been treated with more objectivity
and fairness (such as it was) than the Serbs. Why so much hatred
to a people who as Mr. Diles knows from first hand experience
didn’t deserve it. The answer can be found in the real history
of WWII, not the Cold War propaganda that most of us have
accepted for generations as the truth.
The standard Western reason the British (who were "in
charge of Yugoslavia during the war) have spun for the betrayal
of Serbia was that Tito’s communist Partisans were a more
effective fighting force against the Germans than the Serbian
Orthodox (Chetnik) resistance. When the debriefings of Allied
intelligence officers were made public, it became clear that
the actual and potential military contributions and power of
the Serbian Orthodox resistance was an order of magnitude
greater then the Partisan. Then the story that the Serbian
Diaspora at least, seems to believe is "we (US/UK) were
tricked by clever communist moles into supporting Tito".
Perhaps because Mr. Diles doesn’t feel the need to prove his
"100% Americanism" as most Serbian Americans seem
to do, he can see the truth that the "communist mole"
story is just another half clever deception game (much like
the phony weapons of mass destruction gambit was used against
Iraq and believed by most turnip truck Americans).
The real history of World War Two has yet to see the light
of day, but if it ever did you would know the following:
- The British and Americans mired in a decade long Great
Depression knew that left alone, the Soviet Union would have
the world’s largest economy and most powerful military by 1950.
- Great Britain, France and the Vatican promoted fascism
in Europe including bringing Hitler to power in Germany as a
"bulwark against Bolshevism" Even American State
Department Officials had similar views" Only Nazi
Germany could stay the advance of Soviet Bolshevism in Europe…
many of the career State Department officials shared
Bullet’s cynical enthusiasm for Hitler’s talents"
from "The Splendid Blond Beast" by Christopher Simpson
- In additional to facilitating Mussolini in Italy,
Franco in Spain, and Hitler in Germany, the Vatican is
organizing fascist forces in the "Intermariam" (between
the Baltic and Adriatic Seas ) Catholic Curtain counties –
Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Austria, Hungary,
Czechoslovakia, and of course Croatia (temporarily a part
of larger Orthodox Yugoslavia) as a political/military barrier
against the Soviet Union
- Hitler did not want to conquer Great Britain, instead
he sought an alliance (as the maritime component to Germany
land forces) with Britain in his anti Soviet (Russian) crusade
"They (Neville Chamberlain, Lord Halifax, Sir John Simon,
and Sir Samuel Hoarse) were sure the Soviet Union and the
Soviet Union only was the emery of the Axis and that they
(UK) could quite easily come to a business like arrangement
with Hitler" from "Outline of World History’ by
H. G. Wells
- The Conservative Party faction around Winston Churchill
who was as interested in the destruction of the Soviets as
Chamberlain and Hitler distrusted the latter and feared the
former may prevail in a war with Germany, so his plan was
to ensnare the US in the war, which, of course we all know
succeeded very well.
- The period between the defeat of Poland and the invasion
of the Low Countries and France was correctly labeled as the
"phony war" In other words as long as German
aggression is headed east towards the Soviet Union, Britain
and France had no reason or desire to actually fight Germany.
After all this is consistent with Britain’s real policy aim -
use Hitler as a "useful idiot" in the mutual
destruction of its two biggest continental rivals - Germany
and the Soviet Union.
- However, the German General Staff, having experienced a
two front war in WWI insisted on dealing with France and
Britain before an attack on the Soviets. As a matter of
strategic planning, the General Staff always considered
England Germany’s historical enemy, and had indeed supported Germany’s
Rapallo cooperation agreements with the Soviets in the 20’s.
However Nazi Germany made no serious effort to conquer Britain,
although it was easily in their means. The London Blitz was
a "slap on the wrist", a gesture the British understood
as such, so in Western Catholic Europe for four years, life
went on much as it did before the war, except the obvious
fact of German occupation. In fact 95% of the destruction
of life (30,000,000+ dead) and property in WWII Europe
occurred in the Slav and/or Orthodox countries. Certainly
this could not have been one of reasons why Pius XII did not
speak out against Nazi Germany’ s aggression.
- On Dec 8, 1941 one day after the Japanese attack on
Pearl Harbor Churchill says "we’ve won" We meaning
the US and UK, but certainly not Yugoslavia or the Russians.
From that date on what concerned the British was not the fate
of Germany, that was sealed, but what would Europe look like
after the war. Would there still be a Soviet Union, a vastly
diminished Union, or a great Soviet Union astride of Nazified
Europe", only time would tell and as events unfolded
- The Serbian coup that toppled the government of Regent
Prince Paul disrupts Germany’s timetable for "Operation
Barbarossa" by a critical six weeks. President Roosevelt
whose sympathies were clearly with Serbia throughout the war
says that this event was the turning point of the war. John
Keegan, the eminent British military historian calls the Serbian
coup (which had overwhelming popular support throughout Serbia)
"one of the greatest acts of defiance to tyranny in
- The first and largest anti Nazi resistance movement is
formed by unsurrendered remnants of the Yugoslav Army (we
should be honest and just say Serbs) under the command of
Draza Mihajlovic. This should be no surprise to anyone,
including the British, as the military performance and heroism
of the Serbs in the First World War is unsurpassed among
all the combatants and the Serbs capacity to endure suffering
and deprivation without surrendering is unsurpassed in
world history. In post Middle Age warfare, when a country
casualties (killed) approached 5% of its population, even
the most committed and bravest (for example the American
Confederate States in the American Civil War or the Japanese
in WWII) surrendered, however the Serbs in WWI lost nearly
one third of her population including 56% of its males and
did not surrender, so the British know very well they are
dealing with a people who don’t make deals, but will
literally fight to the death for their beliefs.
- Whether the Hess mission to Britain resulted in a
succinct secret understanding with the British we do
not know (one reason being Hess was found dead under
British guard in Spandau prison). For a detailed history
of this refer to John Costello’s "Ten Days to
Destiny". What we do know is that as far as the
one of the two main fronts of the European War there
was NO WAR in Western Europe from the fall of France
June 1940 to June 6, 1944. There was in fact a de facto
peace between the UK and Germany during WWII. This prompted
Gen Eisenhower to record in his private memoirs that
Britain refusal to open a second front to relieve the
Soviets was betrayal of the Allied war strategy. Eisenhower
as reported in a Canadian documentary on the Dieppe Raid
commented to his fellow American officers on British
cowardliness. Personally, my view is that Eisenhower
incorrectly attributed British inaction, not realizing
the Britain and America had different goals in the war
(at least until the death of President Roosevelt).
- The British were learning in detail by the summer
of 1941 of the Catholic Church’s inspired Ustashe slaughter
of Serbian Orthodox in the Independent State of Croatia.
The death toll by the end of the summer of’41 is over
500,000. Jasenovac becomes the first death camp in Europe.
- Britain, starting in late 1941 began recruiting in
Canada known Yugoslav communist for training and insertion
into Yugoslavia, despite the well known exploits of the
Serbian Orthodox resistance.
- Britain kept its options open in Yugoslavia by
establishing contact with and minimally aiding both
Mihajlovic’s and Tito’ forces.
- The forces of Mihajlovic play an important role
in the Allied victory in North Africa by destroying
great quantities of German war material on Serbia’s
railroads. The contributions to the war effort by
the Partisans (who also fought with typical Serbian
heroism) are minimal, simply because they have no
presence in Serbia during the critical years of the war.
- The Battle of Stalingrad stops German expansion
into Russia. However, the decisive battle of WWII is
at the Kursk Salient in July – August 1943. Here Germany
is truly defeated and from this time on will be on the
defensive and in retreat. And everyone knows it. Germany
will lose the war. The Soviet Union will win – D Day or
no D Day. It’s been a chestnut of Cold War propaganda
as well as a fraud of Western histories to raise D Day
[June 6, 1944] to the level of importance of Kursk.
Germany lost nearly more men fighting the Russian
every month for four years than they did fighting the
Americans and British from D Day to the end of the war.
From a British perspective (but not to the Americans,
again to the credit of Roosevelt) D-Day was the rescue
mission to save Germany (and her vast industry) from the Soviets.
- Ironically, the Red Army victory at Kursk will
doom Draza Mihajlovic and the Serbian people. For up
until Kursk, the British government and the American
Republican party (John Foster Dallas) are pushing a
plan that calls for Germany to limit its conquest to
the German speaking areas of Europe and then an alliance
of the Western Allies (US/UK) with Germany against
the Soviet Union. "In time Allen Dulles and his
brother John Foster Dulles became two of the most
influential advocates of a separate peace tactics in
elite US circles. John Foster Dulles already a senior
foreign policy expert for the Republican Party –
publicly declared in the spring of 1943 that Poland
was the place to draw the line against the Soviets.
Allen Dulles meanwhile opposed FDR’s agreement to seek
unconditional surrender of Germany" from the "Splendid
Blond Beast by Christopher Simpson.
- After Kursk, Britain, the US, every corporal and
up in the war knew the Red Army was going to win big
and there was no chance for a stabilized Eastern Front
in the western Soviet Union. What lay ahead would be
a divided Europe with the Soviets occupying much if
not all of the Catholic Curtain countries.
- One month after Kursk Brigadier Fitzroy MacLean
arrives at Tito’s headquarters with a promise of
whatever amount of aid to the Partisans to ensure a
- Meanwhile the British demand suicidal actions
by Mihajlovic of no military consequence, yet will
invite massive German reprisal at a ratio of 100 Serb
civilians killed for every German. Mihajlovic remarks
"The British are prepared to fight to the last
drop of Serbian blood"
Everyone knows the rest of the story – Tito wins
in Yugoslavia and Serbia is utterly defeated. But as
Mr. Diles ask "why"? Well put your self in
the position of the British. They really had no choice.
Even if the British were fully appreciative of all
the Serbian sacrifices they absolutely needed a
"communist", or more precisely an anti-Serb
victory in Yugoslavia. The British (remember who’s
strategic concern is the post war landscape of Europe)
send a seasoned anti-communist operative to a communist
(Tito) to aid him against the pro West pro democracy
Serbs of Draza Mihajlovic in a war they (the British)
have manipulated to destroy Communism (Soviet Union).
Well the British say – Tito is killing more Germans a
nd that’s why we help him. Aren’t these the same British,
Eisenhower accused of betrayal and cowardliness for
not fighting the Germans for four years? Yes, they
are the same ones.
No, British backing of Tito has nothing to do with
killing Germans. They know Germany is defeated. So
what does motivate the British into making Tito?
Remember the Serbian Holocaust. The British and
the Americans know that as a result of the Battle
of the Kursk Salient there will be a divided Europe
with the Soviets occupying much of Catholic Europe.
They also knew that communism holds great appeal to
much of the population of two other great Catholic
countries, France and Italy (where the communist
were the effective anti Nazi resistance, but received
no aid from the US/UK).
So, the situation that will face the Western allies
at the end of World War II is Soviet occupation of
the Intermariam Catholic counties in the East and
massive popular support for communism and socialism
in France and Italy.
The British were in a position along with the
Americans to know all of the facts on the ground
concerning the Serbian Holocaust and the role of
the Catholic Church right up to Pope Pius XII. They
also realized after Kursk there would be a divided
Europe and a long ideological struggle with communism
and that propaganda and claims to moral superiority
(given the experiences of capitalism producing two
world wars and the Great Depression in the first
half of the twentieth century) would be crucial for
victory. Simply put, the British and Americans feared
a Serbian Orthodox victory in Yugoslavia would lead
to Serb retribution and justice which very likely
lead to the downfall of the Papacy and perhaps the
entire Roman Catholic Church at a time when the Soviet
Union enjoyed immense prestige for its role in defeating
Nazi Germany, and at a time when the masses of Europe
where shifting radically to the left.
In other words if the Vatican was exposed as
complicit in mass murder, if Pius XII was in the
defendant box at Nuremberg, most of Western Europe
may have gone communist by free elections.
So, what to do you do if you are the British and
Americans? You create in the form of Tito a force that
is: one, anti Serb and two, entirely dependent on the
West for its survival. And this is the reality behind
Anglo American policy in World War II Yugoslavia.
They supported Tito not because his forces were killing
Germans, they supported Tito because the British and
Americans knew Tito’s Partisan were killing Serbs.
The strategy worked and brilliantly so. Tito did
cover up the Serbian Holocaust, the Catholic Church
was saved. The Roman Church did go on as anticipated
to agitate in Poland, Lithuania, and the rests of
Catholic Eastern Europe, hastening the collapse of
communism. So, far from being a mistake or being tricked,
the Anglo-American support of Tito was in fact a brilliant
"In January 1944, General Korneev who was sent
as chief of Soviet mission to Tito, asked Bill Deakin
who was sent in May 1943 as the first British mission,
why were the British helping Tito when the Soviets had
no confidence in the military worth of the partisans
and considered Mihajlovic as the only group of some
significance... At that time Deakin said "I thought
Korneev must have believed we were helping Tito because
of some secret political motive" from a speech by
Nikola R. Pasic III
President Roosevelt asks him (Yugoslav ambassador
to the US Fotic) on Dec 20, 1941 "How, after such
horrible crimes we could expect the Serbs to live in
the same state with the Croats". And on an earlier
occasion he (Roosevelt) had said "It would be for
the Serbs to decide what sort of community they intended
to retain with the Croats after the war. On several
occasions Roosevelt spoke of Serbia, not Yugoslavia in
his public utterances. From the "The Fall of Yugoslavia" by Ilija Jukic
Roosevelt had quite different war aims then Churchill.
Among them was the dismantling of the British Empire.
However, with his decline in health and death, Anglophiles
and American Catholics (Allen and John Foster Dulles and
William Donavan) in the US government under the
"useful idiot" Truman were responsible for,
among other things, the betrayal of Serbia, the dropping
of atomic bombs (against the advice of every senior US
military leader) on defenseless Japanese cities, and
the Cold War itself with its insane arms race which
still threatens the existence of all humanity.
Only the Catholic Church and the British needed
the second Yugoslavia as a means of covering up the
greatest crime of the 20th Century and
denying the Serbs enormous sacrifice and contributions
to the Allied victory.
Will the truth about Serbia ever be known. Remember
Rebecca West’s "historians are liars". All
history to some degree is contemporary history or as
George Orwell noted "he who controls the past
controls the future". As long as the Cold War
persisted, the truth of the Serbian Holocaust could
never see the light of day. Just as the Canadians
could not accuse their British cousins of deliberate
lying and manipulation during the Cold War for the
disastrous Dieppe Raid that cost thousand of Canadian
casualties or the sex scandal that surrounds the Catholic
Church today (but whose events happened in the 60’s,
70’s and 80’s ),could the crimes of Western states or
institution be known or else the spotless mantle of
Western moral superiority would be stained.
At the end of the Cold War, Serbs had a world historic
opportunity to correct the record and restore the name of
Serbs and Serbia to its century’s long reputation for
what is best in humanity. In Serbia, the "The
Museum of the Victims of Genocide" opened in Belgrade
in 1991 and started reveling the hidden history of the
Serbian Holocaust. The man that authorized that museum
is now on trial for his life in The Hague. His successors
immediately closed that museum while putting hundreds of
millions of US dollars in their pockets. Meanwhile in the
US, the Serbian Orthodox church remains openly hostile to
any member that tries to remember the dead of the Serbian
Holocaust. Serbian American institutions, including the
church in their anti communist zeal have been at most
times witting accomplices in the cover up of the Serbian
Holocaust. And that Mr. Diles is what it was about in
1943 and in 1993. The West’s suppression of the history
of the Serbian Holocaust was the only thing that matter
to them in regards Yugoslavia for the last 60 years. And
their attacks on all things Serbian will continue until
Serbia is cleansed of heroes and then the West can rest
and know that we ourselves will destroy our own history
for our 30 pieces of silver. In another generation, unless
something is done, the Serbian Holocaust and its aftermath
will be lost for eternity. In the final analysis, when you
sweep away all of the ideological blinders and deliberate
misinformation, Draza Mihajlovic and Slobodan Milosevic,
the last two genuine Serb leaders both trod the same path
of heroic resistance and martyrdom standing alone against
a corrupt world.
