Uz kraći studijski komentar obrađen je problem spašavanja jevrejske dece iz Nezavisne Države Hrvatske za vreme Drugog svetskog rata.
This paper presents an attempt to save Jewish children, aged from 7 to 16, from the Independent State of Croatia during World War Two. The children were to be transported by the International Red Cross through Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and Turkey to Palestine. The whole effort was supported by Jewish organizations for immigration to Palestine. It was planned that, with the approval of the then Croatian authorities, a significant number of children were to be resettled. However, under the specific circumstances, which are described in detail in this paper, the initial number was reduced down to only twelve who in the end arrived in Palestine. Subsequent transports were prevented through diplomatic interventions of Arab organizations in Palestine. The appendices include a voluminous correspondence regarding this issue.
