ZAGREB, CROATIA A Jewish human rights group urged Croatian authorities on Wednesday to ban a book that denies crimes committed by Croatia's World War II pro-Nazi regime.
Chief Nazi hunter Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a statement that a book titled "The Jasenovac Lie Revealed" is being promoted in a Catholic church in Zagreb on Jan. 16. The book, published by the right-wing Society for Research of the Threefold Jasenovac Camp, has multiple authors.
Zuroff said the book "denies that mass murders of Serbs, Jews, Roma and Croatian anti-fascists were carried out frequently in the notorious Jasenovac concentration camp."
"These crimes are corroborated by historical documents, testimonies of survivors and the scholarly research of numerous reputable historians," Zuroff said, adding that works like this "would immediately be banned in Germany and Austria, and rightfully so." (more...)
Croatians seem to be awfully close to the Peronists
