As though it was not enough that the Italian Ambassador to Croatia humiliated Serb, Romani, Jewish and other victims killed in the Independent State of Croatia’s Jasenovac Concentration and Death Camp system, there has been a new disgrace.

A new scandal has occurred. Purposefully or accidentally, it turned out that the international community has the goal to belittle the genocide of Serbs, the Romani and Jews committed in the Independent State of Croatia. A number of ambassadors and heads of international organization missions accredited in Bosnia and Herzegovina visited the “Donja Gradina” Memorial Area in the Republic of Srpska in recent days to honor the victims of the Independent State of Croatia’s Jasenovac Concentration and Death Camp system.

Unfortunately, almost as a rule, the official Twitter accounts of European Union representatives and the embassies of the United States and Sweden all wrote that they honor those killed, without any of them mentioning that the victims in the camps were precisely Serbs, Jews, the Romani and other peoples.

The Museum of Genocide Victims spoke on this occasion.

“The Museum of Genocide Victims is concerned to note another in a series of clear and unequivocal examples of the distortion of the genocide of Serbs, the Romani and Jews committed on the territory of the Independent State of Croatia. Unfortunately, almost as.a rule, the official Twitter accounts of the aforementioned diplomatic posts have failed to state any data on the ethnic and religious makeup of the victims, that is, their executioners, i.e. the historic context of the genocide itself. In doing so, they have (un)knowingly deprived the public of answers to the questions: WHO? WHOM? WHERE? HOW? and WHY?, also demonstrating the consistency in a decades-long, concerning and ominous practice of depersonalizing victims and criminals,” stated the Museum of Genocide Victims.

The Museum stressed that “The persistence, in the case of the Independent State of Croatia, in consistently avoiding to unequivocally emphasize that the genocide in question targeted Serbs, the Romani and Jews, as well as consistently circumventing identifying the criminals as the Croatian Ustasha, is an unhistorical, uncivilized and unacceptable move by the official representatives of several countries and international organizations.”

“That move and others like it, apart from demonstrating a readiness to distort history, at the same time is a strong impulse to mobilize contemporary generations towards a new hatred and new violence, which should be fought with knowledge and equal piety to all innocent victims of World War II on the territory of Yugoslavia,” communicated the Museum.
