Mass World War II grave found in Croatia
April 5, 2009
ZAGREB - A mass grave dating from World War II and containing the remains of up
to 4,500 people, including German officers and their Croatian allies, has been
found near Zagreb, media reports say.
Bones were found in six caves at Harmica, in the Zapresic region, some 20km
west of the capital, close to the border with Slovenia, newspapers and state
The website of the daily Jutarnji List said they included soldiers of the
Croation Ustachi regime allied to the Nazis and some 500 German army officers.
It quoted an official of the Croatian branch of the Helsinki Committee human
rights organisation, Ivan Zvonimir Cicak, as saying they were probably members
of the German army's 39th Division, which comprised Croatian troops commanded
The division surrendered to communist partisans loyal to Josip Broz Tito near
the town of Rijeka in early 1945. They appeared to have been executed and their
bodies were thrown into the Harmica caves.
The estimate of the numbers of bodies is based on the testimony of witnesses,
and Cicak said that other mass graves could be found in the same region.
Hundreds of thousands of Serbs, gypsies and Jews were massacred by the Ustachis
until the regime was overthrown by the partisans under Tito, who went on to
become ruler of Yugoslavia.
