Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:
Postcard from Croatia, Zagreb (1941) with Ustase insignia. The Independent State of Croatia was a fascist puppet state ruled by the Usstase under the leadership of Ante Pavlic, subsequent to the invasion of Yugoslavia by the Nazis in April, 1941. Actions against Jews commenced immediately. Leaders of the Catholic Church joined the anti-Semitic propaganda. In August 1941 concentration camps were established, including Jasenovac and Stara Gradiska for women and children. It has been estimated that as many as 100,000 people were murdered in Jasenovac concentration camps by the end of the war, including Jews, Roma, Croats and Serbs.
