Movie Synopsis & Review

After the Ustasha-German offensive on Kozara, the local population ends up in concentration camps. Among them is twelve-year-old Dara with her mother and two brothers. They know nothing about their father’s fate. The horror he will survive in the Stara Gradiška camp will make him grow up overnight.

Dara’s mother and older brother are killed, and the mission of her life becomes to save the life of her younger brother…

What made Jasenovac particularly cruel was the existence of a special camp for children where an estimated 20,000 Jewish, Roma and Serb children were brutally murdered. The methods used by the Ustase guards to kill and torture the inmates were reportedly so barbaric that even SS chief Heinrich Himmler is believed to have suggested to the Ustasha that industrial killing, i.e. gas chambers, was a “cleaner way” to liquidate victims so that the guards wouldn’t need to use knives, axes, and other handheld weapons against those that they were sending to their deaths.

Historians have estimated that between 700,000 to 1,000,000 people were killed at Jasenovac. The Nazis, themselves, recorded up to 750,000 deaths. Since the breakup of Yugoslavia in 1991, the Croatian government has continually insisted that only 83,000 people were killed at Jasenovac. Croatia’s first post-Yugoslav president, Franjo Tudjman, an unabashed nationalist and the man responsible for restoring the Ustase-era flag as the national symbol of Croatia, insisted until his death in December 1999 that a mere 3,000-4,000 people died while imprisoned at Jasenovac.

Disturbing history of Serb girl experiencing cruelty of war and concentration death camps of Nazi Croatia. Cruelty of Croatian Ustasha in Jasenovac extermination camps of WW2 where hidden from public as it was the “public secret” in communist oppressed Yugoslavia. For “sake of peace” between ethnic groups communists kept it well hidden from public outside of Yugoslav borders! Worth watching despite payed articles and “journalist” who downplay importance of victims of ethnic Serb origin. Serbs did play major roll in WW2 in Balkans stopping Nazi Germany in its conquest of domination.

    Please avoid use of Nazi, Ustasha regime or similar terms. Independent state of Croatia would be enough.

    “Historians have estimated that between 700,000 to 1,000,000 people were killed at Jasenovac.” – would you care to name some of these “Historians”? I mean, some real historians, not some serbian ultraright crackpots.
    Don’t get me wrong, Jasenovac was real deal. What was done there was horrible, and will be remembered, no matter how much nutcase deniers scream. However, 10000000 killed is estimate of all victims, on territory of entire ex-Yugoslavia, killed by all sides (yes, including those killed by UK bombers).
    This movie is not made to commemorate victims, or to reveal something unknown (well, maybe unknown to Hollywood). Whoever knows history of relations between Croatians and Serbs, is aware of it.
