In the rich correspondence of Sava Kosanović, the leader of the Independent Democratic Party and minister in the emigrant government of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, kept during World War II with numerous refugee politicians and other prominent persons, particularly important is the letter which he received in November 1941 from Milan Grol, the leader of the Democratic Party and also one of the ministers. Th e letter was part of the response to the non-objective interpretation that Sava Kosanović, while in America, gave to the events in the Independent State of Croatia. Kosanović’s attempts to present the Croatian people as entirely non-responsible for the crimes committed against the Serbs, while at the same time overemphasising the “sins” of Serbian inter-war politics, triggered great uproar and resentment among the majority of Serbian politicians. Milan Grol’s response to him was more open and substantiated than all others because Grol overtly stated that the suff ering of the Serbs in... the Independent State of Croatia could not be explained only by the intentions and acts of few Ustaša members.
