‘Serbian Family tree’ — Shocking lynching image posted outside kindergarten in Croatian capital threatens Serbs

Serbian Family Tree - hanging of serbs.jpg

The image of two individuals hung from a tree harkens back to the genocide committed by the Croatian Ustasha fascists against the Serbs in World War II.

Serbs were murdered, men, women and children, by the hundreds of thousands in  concentration camps in Croatia, half of which were run by Catholic priests with the knowledge of the Vatican.

The horrific atrocities committed in Croatia death camps were some of the most grisly of the war.

The sticker was seen at the entrance to a kindergarten.

The photograph was posted on Twitter by Balkanist editor-in-chief Lily Lynch, an American who lives in Serbia.

“Serbs on willows” (“Srbe na vrbe”) is a slogan often used by extreme nationalists in Croatia.
