Bleiburg – Evoking Memories Of Victims Of Heinous Communist Crimes

Do not permit anyone telling you differently: commemorating the Croatian victims of mass murders by the hand of communist Yugoslavia in May 1945 at Bleiburg, Austria, and along the so-called Way of the Cross, after WWII had ended, is and always has been just that. Not a nostalgic celebration of the WWII Ustashe ideology as […]

Croatia: When Business Mixed With Politics

When Croatia’s government recently took over the administration of its largest firm – Agrokor – that employs some 60,000 people it also took over the solving of the company’s six billion dollars in debt.

Averting Yet Another Collapse Of Croatian Government

When upon my return from Croatia a few weeks ago I wrote about my observations on the state of the country one thing that rattled me a great deal was the extent to which the threatening bankruptcy of one private company (Agrokor) was shaking-up the whole country. Subsequently, Croatia was faced with an almost unprecedented, […]
