The most difficult thing about the film is that we know that it was even scarier … The premiere of the film “Dara from Jasenovac” opened the “Pandora’s box” and ignited memories of one of the greatest sufferings in Europe of the last century. The Ustasha camps were the only facilities of such a monstrous purpose, without being created by Nazi Germany.
In them, a large number of Serbs, Roma and Jews were killed, and people eager to inflict suffering, without a shred of conscience and ready for the most cruel methods of murder, were placed at the forefront of intimidating strongholds.
These are the five most cruel villains from Jasenovac, whose crimes and the Nazis remained silent.
The Ustasha officer and commander of the concentration camps, Vjekoslav Maks Luburić, was given the epithet “the most brutal among them” because of his cruelty.
Even German observers described him as a great sadist and insane. His character in the film “Dara iz Jasenovac”, which shook the Serbian public, was revived by the young actor Marko Janketić.
After the war, Luburić commanded the “Crusaders”, who fought a guerrilla war against Yugoslavia after the disintegration of the Independent State of Croatia. In 1957, Luburić founded the emigrant terrorist organization Croatian People’s Resistance.
According to ethnological sources, the Luburićs are part of the famous Drobnjak tribe, which were converted to Catholicism and Croatization in the 1930s, of which Luburić himself was aware. In his youth, he was convicted several times for various crimes.
Udba killed him
In Spain, he hid under a false name, he was the coordinator of terrorist attacks throughout Europe, and among other things, activities in Yugoslavia were noticed, which is why he attracted the attention of Udba, which came to his mind.
Maks Luburić was killed by the agent of that organization, Ilija Stanić, with the secret name Mungos, after he infiltrated the HNO. Luburic was killed in his villa in Spain in 1969, and an autopsy determined that he was hit in the head several times, but that he died of suffocation with his own blood.
Between 1,152 and 1,631 children died in horrific conditions in the children’s camp in Sisak alone. He practically commanded the death camp machinery in the Independent State of Croatia. He did not hesitate to shoot his own. At the end of 1942, due to the savagery, Pavelić himself barely protected him from the German officer von Horstenau, who did everything he could to put him behind bars. Tens of thousands of shooting, slaughtered, dismembered civilians of all ages, religions, nationalities, genders, literally rivers of blood remained behind Luburić.
With a horrifying nickname – “Fra Satan”, he was in charge of the most mass murders of the camp in Jasenovac, where about 30,000 detainees were killed in just four months.
He was a theologian by profession, often combining his religion and extreme political ideology in his crime manifestos. His character, in all his brutality in the film “Gift from Jasenovac”, was painted by Vuk Kostić.
Massacre at school
In addition to the killings in the camps, he also committed massacres in several cities during the war, and the culmination of the savagery was the massacre of 60 Serbian children at school. Filipovic first singled out Muslim and Catholic children, and then cut off the heads of the remaining Serbs.
Due to all the crimes, he was suspended in the Franciscan order, but he continued his camp mandate.
In the middle of 1945, he fled to Austria, where he was captured by the British, who immediately extradited him to the new Yugoslav authorities, where he was sentenced to death by hanging.
Thanks to his family ties with Maks Luburić, by marrying his sister Nada, Dino Šakić set out to make his way in the hierarchy on the Ustasha ladder.
He reached the peak of his career with the position of the manager of the camp in Jasenovac, and after the collapse of the Independent State of Croatia, he set off on the “rat canals” to Argentina, together with his wife. In this country, Dino and Nada had three children, and their godfather was the head of the Ustasha state, Ante Pavelić.
He saw Tudjman
He briefly moved to Spain and cooperated with Luburic, after which he returned to South America, where he hosted the later Croatian President Franjo Tudjman. On that occasion, Sakic bragged about his “deeds” during the war and pointed out that he would do it again if necessary.
At the end of the 20th century, he was deprived of liberty and sentenced to 20 years in prison for genocide against Serbs. Even imprisoned, he received special treatment in order to dedicate himself to writing memoirs. He died at the prison hospital in 2008.
The right hand of Ivica Matković and Max Luburić during the cruel mandate in Jasenovac. Ljubo is known as a bloodthirsty maniac and sadist, who studied philosophy in his youth.
He was personally in charge of the safety of Vlatko Maček in his captivity, who noticed that Ljubo Miloš often prayed, which is why he asked him if he was afraid of God’s punishment for all the crimes he committed, to which Miloš replied.
– Don’t tell me anything. I know that I will burn in hell for all this, but I will burn for Croatia.
Slaughter of Jews
According to the testimonies, he competed with other officers who would be more brutal, and he often dressed in a white coat and pretended to be a doctor, in order to listen to the patients and then slaughter them. He mostly did this on the Jews, to whom he cut the ribs next to his throat and opened his stomach, which he called the “ritual slaughter of the Jews.”
When he was “caught” by a mad attack, he was able to ride a horse and shoot at the camp inmates from it.
After the war, he was discovered and arrested by UDB operatives, with whom he later cooperated and betrayed the positions of other Ustashas, which led to many arrests. After a short trial, he was executed on the gallows in 1948.
The administrator of Jasenovac between 1942 and 1943, when the worst crimes were committed in that camp, was Ivica Matković.
He was in charge of planning and execution, and according to the survivors, he was a cold-blooded killer, who had fun harassing the victims while they were dying. Until his arrival in Jasenovac, the killings took place spontaneously, while from that moment on they became systematic.
At the end of the war, he fled with a column of civilians, and it is assumed that he was executed in 1945 in Slovenia.
