Croatia Reburial Plan Sparks Jewish Anger

Croatian officials said Friday that the remains of about 100 soldiers from Croatia’s World War II Fascist army would be reburied alongside anti-Nazi fighters, prompting Jewish outrage.

Croatia’s parliamentary commission for the victims of World War II said the reburial was requested by descendants of the Croatian soldiers, who were distressed that their loved ones had been dumped into unmarked mass graves at the end of World War II.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Jewish group that monitors the treatment of Nazi victims, said the reburial “is an insult to the memory of those very victims for whom [the] commission was established.”
