Goldstein was only thirteen years old, and he would never see his father again. More than fifty years later, Goldstein seeks to piece together the facts of his father's last days. The moving narrative threads stories of family, friends, and other ordinary people who lived through those dark times together with personal memories and an impressive depth of carefully researched historic details. The other central figure in Goldstein's heartrending tale is his mother--a strong, resourceful woman who understands how to act decisively in a time of terror in order to keep her family alive.

Nov 25, Jake Goretzki rated it really liked it Shelves: An engaging combination of the autobiographical and personal with the historic, and a must-read for the Yugo-watcher and Balkanophile. It's scrupulously balanced and fair, in a context where there is famously little balance on offer. He is - evidently - a good man. Reading this, twenty years from , you also soon realise how little time, really, had elapsed between and that next flare-up, giving it all a feeling of terrible inevitability though it needn't have been inevitable, An engaging combination of the autobiographical and personal with the historic, and a must-read for the Yugo-watcher and Balkanophile.
Reading this, twenty years from , you also soon realise how little time, really, had elapsed between and that next flare-up, giving it all a feeling of terrible inevitability though it needn't have been inevitable, of course. I always avoided the 'ancient hatreds' interpretation knowing so many people from a generation who patently never felt such , but this does gives more context to some of those fears and paranoias.
And you know you've seeing brutal when even the Nazis asked to calm it down a bit.

I think it's also safe to say that Tony Robinson and 'Time Team' probably won't ever want to make a special in the former Yugoslavia - stick that 'geo-phys' anywhere and they'll find a missing village from some time in the 20th century with a horrific, fragmented account attached. Yes, the 20th century. The nineties indeed: high-tops, scrunchies, grunge and genocide. Knjiga mi je dala odgovor na neka pitanja kojima se nisam stizao baviti.
Povukao sam i neke paralele sa posljednjim ratom u BiH. Knjiga obiluje imenima. Jan 23, Wf Munn rated it really liked it. A valuable contribution to understanding the Balkan Holocaust and Nazi collaboration in Croatia. Jun 05, Otto Lambauer rated it really liked it. Feb 10, Brett Miller rated it it was amazing. This was a very important book covering the period of mass killings of Serbs and leftist individuals by the Ustasha. It is written in language that was surprising in honesty and level headedness reminiscent of Primo Levi.
Despite the loss of the authors father to the Ustasha- he makes the effort to connect to the killers, the victims and retaliators.

He even goes so far as to recount the lives of the men who arrested his father and his mother and of those men who were sent to death themselves for their actions.
It is a book written by a man who is too old now to bother with anger, with sadness or with regrets, it is a journey into forgiveness and forewarnings, into his own mistakes and of those around him. Would highly recommend to anyone especially those who seek to unravel the complexities of the Balkan region. May 29, Susan Webb rated it it was amazing.

This is not an easy read as the unfamiliar places and people's names get confusing. But I found it fascinating and revealing personal memoir, history and hindsight about the troubled country and ethnicities of Yugoslavia as well as eastern Europe in and after WWII, Croats, Serbs, Jews, fascists, Partisans, and the communist movement, the roots of its problems, and the ultimate collapse of socialism.
