Account of little known genocide,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Yugoslav Auschwitz and the Vatican: Croatian Massacre of the Serbs During World War II (Hardcover)
Although Dedijer is a Serb his account of the Catholic Church's role in the Jasenovac concentration camp it is a fair account of this less well known genocide. While there is great uncertainty about the number of Jews and Serbs killed at Jasenovac, a debate which has been heated up further by the conflict in the former Yugoslavia, Dedijer refrains from exaggeration or generalizing statements. The only drawback is that the book is at times rather sluggish reading and Dedijer could well have included more personal accounts of the genocide without loosing in objectivity. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to understand the roots of hatred and fear in the former Yugoslavia and to people interested in the many 'other' genocides which took place in Europe during WW II.
