    Interview Summary
    Ljiljana Ibvanisevic, born December 22, 1937 in Novi Sad, Serbia, discusses living with an aunt in Veliko Nabrdje; her deportation to Jasenovac concentration camp at the age of five; her time in Stara Gradiska camp, part of the Jasenovac camp complex; how her parents joined a partisan group before deportation and left her and her siblings in the care of an aunt; how her eight-month-old sibling disappeared in Stara Gradiska camp; her means of survival by eating grass; the poor sanitary conditions under which she lived; her witness to children being separated from their mothers and sent to various fates by the Ustasa (Ustasha) guards in the camp; the care she received from a Jewish woman named "Bendl;" how she was rescued from Jasenovac by a Croatian man named Grga Zlatar; and how Zlatar and his wife healed her and cared for her after her time in the camp. Ibvanisevic continues by discussing and refuting the allegations made by Franjo Tudjman and Jovan Prnjatovic, a Serb and prisoner from Jasenovac concentration camp, that Jewish prisoners in Jasenovac committed atrocities against Serbian and other prisoners.
