I admit that Yugoslavija is one of the nations along with Croatia which needs a lot of help..so I'm glad you have surfaced.
I wouldn't go so far as calling him a fascist, only a war criminal.Originally posted by birch23
Unfortunately it isn't much we have done with that file,and we do not have the luxury of establishing a Chetnik Gov etc.so we will have to do with what we have.In my notes I have written that perhaps we should change Yugoslavia to a mixture of LC/PC and the introduce a real fascist gov.replac instead...this one should have Dujic in it,,but this is only on the thinking stadium.
Point is he was nobody, hardly a person for ministry, if communist Yugoslavia really wanted him they would succeeded in extradition like they got Andrija Artukovic.Originally posted by birch23
I'm afraid that if we applied to harsh a moral view none of those who was in the Yugoslav Theatre would ever be admitted in..it was quite a bloody mess with atrocities on all sides.
There was much more hard evidence for Dujic extradition (including order signed by his alleged arch enemy Ante Pavelic of safe passage of Dinara division through NDH to Italian border) then for Andrija Artukovic, only Dujic was smart enough not to mess with Jews (not many lived in Knin area anyway) and limit himself to Croats and communist of all nations - last one was very popular in post war US.Originally posted by birch23
As for Dujic himself (no I do not particularly like him...incontrast actually) but again I have applied the golden rule,that the US refused to extradite him.I believe the main reasons was. 1/ He would not get a fair trial, and 2/The US did not find proof enough for his "crimes" (Personally I disagree a lot with the last point)And since he was not convicted of anything it is not up to us to be the moral judges.(I think we should stick to the other Golden Rule...that this is only a game..and a good and fun game so let us keep it there.).
There were several more both ustasha and chetnik leaders who managed to get to US, some even joined US armed forces and fought in Korea.
Andrija StamparOriginally posted by birch23
But since you are here now... I have found these Yugoslavian politicians:
"Professor Andrija Stampar (1888-1958) was our leading authority in the field of epidemiology and a pioneer in preventive medicine. As an expert of the League of Nations he spent three years (1933-1936) in China ( event idea China get Penecilin?), developing the health service there. During the WW2 he was arrested by the German Nazis and kept in custody in Graz in Austria. He was one of the founders of the World Health Organization (WHO) and very active in promoting the health service in Afghanistan, Egypt, Sudan and Ethiopia. He wrote the introductory declaration of the Statute of the WHO and was the first president of this organization. In 1955 he was awarded the medal of Leon Bernard, which is the most prestigeous international acknowledgement in the field of social medicine. For more details see his book The first ten years of the World Helth Organization, Geneva, 1958."

Michel Yovanovitch (his first hame is probably Mihail instead)
