Lovro Kralj: Paving the Road of Death. Antisemitism in the Ustasha Movement 1929–1945
   

Mittwoch, 15. Jänner 2020, 15:00 - 17:00

VWI invites the Institute of Culture Studies and Theatre History at the Austrian Academy of Sciences

KraljThis presentation reinterprets the importance of antisemitism in the fascist Croatian Ustasha movement. Given the fact that the Ustasha ideological core was initially not antisemitic, questions as to why and how they adopted antisemitism have not been adequately answered to date. In this presentation, Kralj will challenge historiographical interpretations which reduce Ustasha antisemitism to a mere imitation of Nazism as well as the arguments that the Ustashe only participated in the Holocaust because of German pressure or appeasement. Kralj argues that the Ustashe adopted antisemitism as a key tool in the fascistisation of its ideology. The adoption of anti-communism, anti-capitalism, anti-democratic, and other attitudes were so closely intertwined with antisemitism that it became one of the main tools of ideology-building in the period from 1935 to 1940. Kralj will examine the interdependence of antisemitism and fascistisation through a quantitative analysis of Croatian National Socialist, clerical, nationalist, and Ustasha press in the period from 1929 to 1945.
