Description

The untold story of the massacre named “Razzia” (Raid) which took place in January 1942, committed by the Hungarian Nazi forces in an occupied part of northern Serbia – Backa. This book unveils the most important details of the massacre, implicating the Hungarian regent (governor) Miklos Horthy. Besides murdering Serbs, Jews and Roma, Horthy had also committed numerous crimes over Ukrainians, Romanians, Ruthenians, Slovaks, Russians and Hungarian antifascists. The book primarily deals with the genocide committed in January 1942, where at least 12,763 civillians had been tossed into icy rivers Tisa and Danube. One of the main perpetrators, Sandor Kepiro, was released in Budapest court on July 18, 2011. He died in Budapest in September 3 of the same year.

Reviews:

”This book is very readable prose, for a historical narrative of criminal Nazi Hungarian activity. Not all Hungarians were Nazis, nor can they all be implicated in these acts. I am a Canadian of Serb ethnicity. I was born in Novi Sad, Serbia.

My mother, and her entire family had to escape this holocaust because my grandfather was a prominent Serb, marked for the killing by Hungarian Nazi elements. Apparently, family friends informed my grandfather that he was on the list of those to be executed. The family left Novi Sad, leaving all property behind for sanctuary in Macva, Serbia.

There they lived under the “relative safety” of the occupying German Army. My mother was sixteen years old at the time these events transpired and she told me about blood in the gutters, summary executions, and individuals hanging from lamp-posts. She also told me about the execution squads on the Danube river. There, people were shot and their bodies allowed to slide under the frozen river.

She told me that the Hungarian soldiers were given drugs and alcohol to make the killings easier to perform. According to my mother’s testimony, the Nazis among the invading troops called out, mocking the Serbs, Jews, Gypsies and other “undesirables” as they marched them to the killing fields. My mother has since passed away, with most of her youth consumed by the fury and cruelty of this war. Throughout her life, my mother remained strong and cheerful despite the things she had witnessed during the war.

Despite this story of inter-ethnic strife, I can also say that our family doctor was of Hungarian descent. He was a family friend, and he saved my mother when she was giving birth to me. Growing up, my best friend was a Hungarian boy. I pray for the future of my child, and the generations to come that they may learn from this event and not repeat the mistakes of their parents.

As a child, I also passed Jewish synagogues that were emptied by Nazi troops, with their congregation most likely sent to killing grounds like Sobibor, Treblinka, and Auschwitz. I asked my mother what happened to the vibrant congregations that came together in these buildings to worship God, and she told me the story. I felt sad for these people, and I saw only pigeons where congregations once laughed, cried, and prayed to God.

This book by Mr. Veljic is a necessary testament to human capacity for cruelty to his fellow man. The book also brought out elements of history I was not aware of. This facts where new to me even though I lived in what is now Serbia until I was fifteen years old. We live in dangerous times, where certain elements of society would like to revise history to suit their political aims.

My Name is Roberto (Bozidar), I am sixty-one years old, and this is my testament to the veracity of these events. There is other historical evidence that attests to the accuracy of these events as told to me, and as written in the book by Mr. Veljic.”

 

”This book reviews a terrible part of my wife’s Grand Father’s life, with his picture. And is of special interest to us. This book reviews a genocide not widely known.”

 

”Aleksandar Veljic’s Genocide Revealed: New Light on the Massacre of Serbs and Jews under Hungarian Occupation shines a spotlight on an evil that has hidden in the shadows for seven decades in the ice and snow of Voivodina. The deliberate mass murder, torture, internment and deportation of Serbs, Jews and Roma during World War II by Hungarian Nazi collaborators was carried out with, what the exhaustive work of Veljic has now uncovered, the consent and encouragement of Miklos Horthy, the Regent of Hungary, who until this day has never been called before the bar of justice. In a straightforward manner Veljic brings to light the diabolical crimes that were part of the holocaust, and reminds us that it was not just the Nazis that committed these horrific acts against humanity, but it was also people from all across Europe, in this case Hungary, who saw others, even their own neighbors, as not like them, and thus not worthy of life, simply because they were different. Veljic’s work in uncovering the crimes against humanity that are a part of the Holocaust that took place during World War II must be addressed and not allowed to once again slink into the shadows of darkness. Lest we confront our past and learn from it, I fear we are doomed to see it repeated.”

 

”Aleksandar Veljic has spent seven years doing primary research on events that were covered up 70 years ago. The list of accomplices is long and is not limited to Europeans. In the wake of WWII Miklos Horthy was given an unprecedented get-out-of-jail free card, as stated by the Wikipedia article on Horthy “But American trial officials declined to present charges against Horthy, a kindness that may have been the result of the influence in Washington of Horthy’s admirer, the former ambassador John Montgomery.” In other words, if we recall the geopolitical context – Horthy’s strong anti-communist record was enough for the U.S. and others to turn a blind eye to his overt support of racist facists like Hitler, and the genocidal activities he endorsed and supported in regions under his control.

While under arrest, he made appearances at trials in which he helped convict others, but during which he was never required to testify. After his release from the Nuremberg prison, in December 1945, Horthy was supported by John Montgomery, Pope Pius XII and others. He could also count on admirers such as Joseph Stalin to plead for mercy on his behalf.

I would not have been aware of any of this if it weren’t for the work of Aleksandar Veljic. In recent months the BBC has picked up on his work, Serbian news media and agencies are getting involved, and respected members of various Holocaust Societies in Israel and elsewhere are highlighting the importance of this book.

One thing is for sure, Veljic’s work is important and explosive enough to stir up interest in atrocities that have been buried for too long. It’s not just that the victims’ blood cries out, it’s that Horthy’s reputation has been laundered, that his memoirs have been published in several languages, and that statues of Horthy are on display in his honor, and that schoolchildren in Hungary and elsewhere are reading stories about his role as a heroic leader, with no idea that in other ways he was a very evil man.

The facts, for example, that he was the first anti-Semitic European Leader, and that he had close ties to Hitler, who admired him during Hitler’s own ascent to power, need to be surfaced, examined, and judged. Not to mention his record of endorsing genocidal atrocities.

This book is destined to cause a re-examination of those facts.

Congratulations to Aleksandar Veljic for his diligence and fortitude, in the face of opposition, with no resources and very, very little official support, on having created a work of original history that is destined to be cited in every subsequent work on this and related subjects, of which we can be sure there will be many.

”Just finished reading Genocide Revealed, by Aleksander Veljic. This is the “missing link” in the WW 2 narrative about Nazi war crimes. A must read! Well researched and very well written. Very professional.”
