Apart from reminding of the terrible suffering of Serbs, Jews and Roma in Croatian camps, the film “Dara iz Jasenovac” also showed some of the greatest villains of that period.
Among them is certainly Dinko Sakic, the husband of Nada Sakic, an Ustasha and a cruel butcher of the Jasenovac camp.
The domestic media remembered Sakic right after the broadcast of this film and brought him into contact with one of the major scandals in the sports history of our country.
Dinko Sakic was one of the managers of the Jasenovac camp in the Second World War, and then emigrated to Santa Teresita in Argentina. He fled with his wife Nada after the collapse of the Independent State of Croatia, in order to have three children there and was registered as Ljubomir Bilanović Šakić in the register of citizens, and the children inherited the name.
Yugoslavia became the world basketball champion in 1990 in Argentina, in the “Luna Park”, the hall in Buenos Aires, after which Tomas Bilanović Šakić flew on the field.
A man with a specific last name for that region ran with the Croatian flag, which Vlade Divac took away from him and threw on the floor, which is the unofficial reason for the conflict between him and Drazen Petrovic – once best friends.
Domestic media now write that according to unofficial information, Tomas Bilanović Šakić is exactly the son of the former managers of Jasenovac, as well as that he never wanted to comment on those allegations and dispute them.
– I brought the Croatian flag with a chessboard into the hall, instead of the one with a five-pointed star, the communist one … I had the accreditation of a photo reporter, I worked for a local newspaper. When Divac kidnapped me, I started running, but it was difficult for me, because I had a bag on my back – Sakic said a few years ago how Divac stole his flag.
Sakic then said that he thought Divac was one of the Croatian players in the Yugoslav jersey, but he was wrong.
– The photos do not show that, but there was a moment when we were ten centimeters face to face, dragging ourselves by the flag. I was 180 centimeters, and he was 216. The players were ordered not to react because they knew that such things could happen. And then I stayed withdrawn, I didn’t want to harm Argentina. I did not support Yugoslavia against the Soviet Union, but I did not support losing either. I cheered for the Croats from the team of Toni Kukoč, Petrović, Zoran Čutura. I thought that Divac was also a Croat. It was only at the moment when he grabbed my flag that I realized that he was a Serb. He never declared himself politically.
The character of Dinko Sakic in the film “Dara iz Jasenovac” is interpreted by a young actor Petar Djurdjevic, who did not have a single line in the film, but was often in the frame and looked quite creepy.
