The deportation of Jews in Serbia and their complete destruction was a crime exclusively committed by the Nazi Germans. They alone deported the Jews and killed them in camps they established in Serbia. The Serbs, who always resisted German invasion, rebelled against the Nazis and were subjected to exceptionally cruel reprisals in which for each German soldier killed by the Serbian partisans Serbian hostages were executed.
All Jewish males were killed by the German army as Serbian hostages, and no history of the Holocaust written by Jews blamed the Serbs for their deportation. But before I go into this in greater detail, it is necessary to say a few words about him. Mandic had been a close ally of Milosevic and his intermediary in dealings with semilegal business enterprises on whose support he drew.
He subsequently emigrated to the UK. Whereas Mandic was a flamboyant propagandist for the Serbian nationalist cause, dimitriije former mentor Almuli more quietly wrote letters in defence of the Serbian cause, as he saw it, dimitriej publication in newspapers. The Serbs want the Yugosalv crisis settled in a way that will not reduce them in the republics other than Serbia to a helpless minority… The republic of Serbia is not indifferent to the fate of the Serbs in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the same as Israel is not indifferent to dimjtrije fate of the Jews in the Diaspora.
In other words Almuli, as the former pro-regime leader of the Belgrade Jewish community, was using these credentials to agitate on behalf of the Serb nationalist cause. Siegman does in Bosnia. He barely mentions the Catholic Croats, although they exposed themselves to widespread criticism by their military involvement in Bosnia and the resurgence of Ustase elements, which are of grave concern to the local Jewish community.
He strongly supports the Bosnian Muslims, despite the fundamentalism of their leader, Alija Izetbegovic. And he invites Western military intervention against the Bosnian Serbs, who are Christian Orthodox, thus provoking possible reactions against Jews in other Christian Orthodox countries. In this way, Almuli attempted to silence Jewish criticism of the Dkmitrije genocide in Bosnia by raising the spectre of Orthodox Christian retaliation dimitirje Jews elsewhere. In his recent attack on the Serbian Helsinki Committee, Almuli claims:.
Therefore I present the question: Do the ladies and gentlement of the Helsinki Committee in Belgrade not know all this, or did not know how to read?
Some great Western powers, in the absence of any kind of international legal basis, claim that Serbia has no moral right to Kosovo, because it has killed there many Albanians at the time of the bombardment in Does this moral disqualification of Serbia need to be covered by the lie that Serbia is just as guilty as the Germans for the murder of the Serbian Jews?! Almuli refers to a letter he had published in the London Review of Books back in Novemberin which he accused me — back when I was a year-old undergraduate — of making false claims about the Nedic regime.

No anti — Jewish legislation was passed by this regime, no death camp for Jews was established or run by it and virtually no killing perpetrated. This is all that can be found about Nedic in the published research of the Federation of Jewish Dimitrij in Yugoslavia. The half — truth in Ximitrije. It was indeed a death camp and staffed by Serbian policemen, but it was not destined for Jews. This camp was established by German order and the Serbian personnel were subject to the control of the Gestapo.
The camp was intended for Serbs who opposed the German occupation, for Partisans, Communists and liberal patriots.
Out of 23, persons who were imprisoned in this camp only were Jews. Vujkovic as the first manager of that first concentration camp in Belgrade; and for his assistant, Djordje Kosmajac. They maintained daily close contact with the Special Police and with dimitrijw decided the question of life or death for tens of thousands of prisoners in the camp.
The security of the camp was exercised by a special detachment of the gendarmerie of the city ljotif Belgrade, under the supervision of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and with the special engagement of the Department of the Special Police. The German part of the camp was under the administration of the Gestapo. The camp building had to be very quickly repaired and organised to suit its new purpose. The bringing of prisoners, Serbs, Jews and Gypsies, was carried out at a fast tempo, as were their daily executions.
Lebel is not the only historian to write about the role of Banjica in the Holocaust. He writes the following vol. Larger groups of Jews reached the camp at Banjica on 14, 15 and 16 September Among them appear the surnames of well known Belgrade Jewish families: From the Banat group there were in the Banjica camp four Jews, doctors by profession: All of these were transferred, as recorded in the first register of the Banjica camp, to a different camp on 17 September Because the camp at the Old Fairground dimktrije was not completely finished, this was probably a matter of transfer djmitrije the camp at Topovske supe.
It is a still more likely assumption that they were then, or a little later, executed at the village of Jabuka in the Banat, where the first executions were carried out both of Banjica prisoners and of Jews imprisoned at Topovske supe.
It is not easy or straightforward to determine the number of Jews who resided at the camp ,jotic Banjica and from it taken to the execution site. Judging by the Banjica registers, that number just exceeded individuals. At the entrance there were ljotif many guards, and even on the occasion of the transport of the prisoners to work there was not a particularly prominent guard.
But it was made clear to them that every attempt at escape would be punished most strictly. They were soon convinced of this: Nedic himself was an anti-Semite. Confirmations were provided by the municipal authorities. The Serbian fascist leader Dimitrije Ljotic, a central figure of the Dmitrije quisling regime, was most explicit in his statements on the Jews. In contrast to Wiesenthal, Almuli has tried his best to ensure that the crimes of his own fellow-countrymen, who participated in the Holocaust, are forgotten.
They were not allies or luotic partners as Ante Pavelic was. The goal was to preserve the Serbian population. A blog devoted to political commentary and analysis, with a particular focus on South East Europe.
