Default Jewish Congress Hails Austrian Move to Ban WWII Bleiburg Event

Jewish Congress Hails Austrian Move to Ban WWII Bleiburg Event

June 2, 2020

The World Jewish Congress, an international organisation representing Jewish communities, praised on Monday the Austrian parliament’s adoption of a proposed ban on the annual commemoration of the killings of Croatian Nazi-allied troops and civilians at Bleiburg in Austria by the Yugoslav Partisans at the end of World War II.

“That event has become a flashpoint for the glorification of the ‘heroes’ of the fascist pro-Nazi movement that ruled wartime Croatia and was guilty of appalling acts of mass murder against Serbs, Jews, Roma and anti-fascist Croats,” the World Jewish Congress said in a statement.
