Croatia – Freedom’s Triumph Yet To Rise!

This weekend of 5th August 2018, like the same date days of past 23 years – as Croatia commemorates the 23rd Anniversary of military operation Storm, Victory Day, War Veterans’ Day and Homeland Gratitude Day – is sure to ruffle up many media pro-Serbian and pro-communist Yugoslavia feathers, dredging up persistently false Serb claims that […]

Croatia: New Fact-finding Research Into WWII Jasenovac Camp Absolutely Essential

  Lies loom large over some historian’s craft. Whether some accounts of history are outright lies or details which have not been proven with evidence presented as fact – they are all lies. And yet, to our dismay, deception hasn’t really figured as a category of historical analysis. Attempts at new fact-finding research into historical […]

Shame on you Mayor of Zagreb Milan Bandic

When it comes to unwanted or unwarranted national symbolism promoted or promulgated via monuments then Zagreb’s Mayor Milan Bandic takes the cake!

Croatia: Abomination In Hauling Out Communist Memorabilia

The time has come – communist threads must be torn away. The mind boggles at the reality today that there are still too many pro-communist Yugoslavia people walking the streets of Croatia.

Buried Alive – Abyss of Communist Crimes

The enormity of communist crimes against Croatian people, part of the former Yugoslavia (WWII and post-WWII), is staggering, overwhelming, astonishing… utterly cruel and bestial. These crimes on the whole still go unpunished, ignored and covered up or justified particularly through today’s so-called antifascists labeling all attempts to muster up justice for the victims of communist […]
