    Oral history interview with Ado Kabiljo


    Interview Summary
    Ado Kabiljo, born in the Bosnian town of Visoko in 1915, discusses his imprisonment in Jasenovac concentration camp in October 1941; his work on an earthen dam in the "Lonjsko Polje" area of Jasenovac; his transfer to the main camp, Jasenovac III at the brick mill, in November 1941; how the Ustasha guards in the camp used the furnace of the brick mill as a make shift crematoria; how Ustasha executed members of his immediate family and burned them in the make shift crematoria; his memories of seeing his mother in the Stara Gradiska part of the Jasenovac camp complex on the day before her execution; his escape from Jasenovac in September 1944; how he found his way to join partisan fighters through the aid of Serbian villagers; his days as a soldier in the Yugoslav army; and his life after World War II. Kabiljo continues by refuting the antisemitic generalizations about the treacherous behavior of Jewish prisoners in Jasenovac.
