The Holocaust in Croatia recounts the history of the Croatian Jewish community during the Second World War with a focus on the city of Zagreb. The authors’ accessible narrative, here available in English for the first time, has been praised for its objectivity, and is complemented by a large bibliography offering an outstanding referential source to archival materials. As such, this book stands as the definitive account of the Jews in Croatia, up to and including the criminal acts perpetrated by the pro-Nazi Ustasha regime, and adds significantly to our knowledge of the Holocaust.
