Book cover

"The name of Diana Obexer Budisavljević is associated with one of the greatest humanitarian achievements in World War II. Austrian by nationality, Diana Obexer Budisavljević rescued around 15,000 Serbian children from Ustaša camps in the Independent State of Croatia. Over 3,000 children died during the rescue or immediately upon leaving camps, exhausted by torture, hunger and illnesses, while more than 12,000 children survived the war. Over a hundred people joined her 'Action Diana Budisavljević,' some of whom gave their lives for the rescue of detained children. This book aims to once again shed light on the heinous crimes of the Ustasha death camps, but also on humane battle of the woman who voluntarily pledged her life for the innocent children - from new-borns to 14-year-olds."--Page [4] of cover.
