It was nearly impossible to escape from the notorious labor-and-death camp, Jasenovac, established by the Independent State of Croatia and active from 1941 until 1945. More than 80,000 Jews, Serbs, Roma, dissident Croats and others – unacceptable to the genocidal Ustaše quisling regime, on ethnic and/or political grounds – were tortured, starved, worked to death and/or brutally murdered. What Auschwitz, Dachau and Sachsenhausen meant for Germany, Jasenovac was for Croatia. This horrific genocide was undertaken with the aim of an ethnically pure Croatian state, modelled on Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. It was one of the largest death camps outside the German Reich, Poland or the occupied USSR, and was run by non-Germans.
After twenty years of scholarly labour, resulting in nearly a thousand pages, Jasenovac is the first book-length fully-comprehensive monograph devoted specifically and entirely to one of the most horrific mass-murder sites of the Second World War. The book draws on the wide abundance of archival material, and includes extensive photographic documentation as well as new maps specifically designed for this edition. With utmost coherence, it combines a diverse range of first-hand testimonies with already-existing and numerous newly-discovered archival documents. Ivo Goldstein has written the definitive history of the genocide at Jasenovac, never losing sight of the victims, whilst researching the matter thoroughly and exposing it with scrupulous responsibility.
Equally, for Ivo Goldstein, historical objectivity is not an obstacle to moral and ethical positions, especially when dealing with the great Nazi and fascist Evil that mankind was subjected to during the Second World War. Written with profound empathy, Goldstein’s Jasenovac surpasses the simple phenomenology of inconceivable suffering – and so serves as a rare example of the harmony that can exist between scholarly and moral imperatives.
“Ivo Goldstein stays firmly anchored in the humanistic tradition of Croatian historiography, proving that the genocide at Jasenovac isn't inexplicable or supernatural, but was the result of the conscious decisions of ordinary people placed in a racist and openly-criminal political system. Although at the Jasenovac camp the prisoners and their murderers occupied diametrically-opposed roles, this book doesn't dehumanize either side, despite the systematic Ustaše attempt to do precisely that to their victims.” - Dr. Goran Hutinec, Assistant Professor, Department of History, University of Zagreb
