Orthodox Church – September 2017

Orthodox Church has again commemorated persecution by Vatican-Croat-NAZI persecution of Serbian Orthodox Christians in Hitler-occupied Yugoslavia.

In April 1941 Hitler occupied Kingdom of Yugoslavia and established NAZI(Ustashe) Croatia. Immediately Croat NAZI regime and the Roman-Catholic Church have organized dozens of death camps, the biggest one was Jasenovac death camp in which over 700 000 Orthodox Christians were martyred, Jasenovac death camp was directed by Roman-Catholic Gray Friars, Croatians organized 9 camps designed for eradication of Orthodox Christian Children population.

300 000 more Orthodox Christians were murdered outside of Jasenovac death camp in various smaller camps, ambushes, and their local villages and cities.

Ustashe Croat Leader Ante Pavelic was many times received in official audience by the Pope of Rome and blessed during the war. When the war ended, Ante Pavelic fled from the Allies Forces with the help of Vatican to Argentina and later Franco’s Fascist Spain.

In 2017 Vatican has again denied Orthodox Church full access to it’s archives, undermining Christian reconciliation.
