16 Sep 1943

  • At Osekovo, Croatia, Yogoslavia, an SS unit of eighty men was attacked by partisans and forced to withdraw. With four badly wounded and several lightly wounded the unit commander telephoned his superior officer in Popovaca to proudly report that as it had been impossible to distinguish between the local population and the partisans he had personally murdered one hundred. ww2dbase [Osekovo, Croatia | AC]
