Denying The Truth
January 23rd, 2017 | Posted By

A school in Croatia was hosting an exhibit about Anne Frank, presented by a local organization in partnership with the Anne Frank museum in Amsterdam.  The school director complained that the exhibit unfairly portrayed Croatian fighters during World War II, the Ustasa, as villains, and he demanded that the exhibit be removed.

The exhibit was, indeed, removed. And the Ustasa were, in truth, villains.

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum website has the following information: “The Ustasa were pro-German Croatian fascists. After the Axis invasion and partition of Yugoslavia in April 1941, the Germans established a dependent Croatian state. The Croatian regime began a genocidal campaign against minority groups and killed hundreds of thousands of Serbs and tens of thousands of Jews in Croatia.”

The exhibit depicted Anne Frank’s life and also highlighted crimes committed against Serbs, Jews, Roma and anti-fascist by the Ustasa.

There have been 23 successful exhibitions in Croatia so far, seen by over 40,000 visitors.

We can’t allow revisionists to change the truth of the past.
