1941: Mass Murder
 pg. 232 
A Jewish prisoner in the Jasenovac, Croatia, concentration camp removes his ring before his execution. In October 1941 the Ustasa began to systematically transfer Croatian Jews to Jasenovac. By year's end about two-thirds of Croatian Jewry was incarcerated in the camp, most of whom were later killed by the Ustasa. In all, about 600,000 people lost their lives at Jasenovac. These included Jews, Gypsies, Serbs, and political prisoners.

Adolf Hitler greets Ante Pavelic, the leader of the collaborationist Croatian state, upon his arrival at the Berghof, Hitler's estate in Berchtesgaden, Germany, for a state visit. The June meeting at the scenic command post in the Bavarian Alps signaled Hitler's pleasure with Pavelic's actions in Croatia. Official visits to the Berghof were an important instrument of Nazi foreign policy.
