  1. Eric Mondschein

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
