Meet Loranda Miletic
A series of Croatian-language Holocaust lessons commissioned in 2006 by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports is now available on USC Shoah Foundation’s website. The lessons draw on testimony to teach various aspects of the Holocaust in Croatia.
In August 1942 was the start of deportation of Jews from Croatia to concentration camps. Edmund Berger remembers when the Germans started to control the Croatian government and implemented restrictions against Jews and eventually the killings of young Jewish men.
Teacher Loranda Miletic was instrumental in the creation of innovative and highly popular Croatian-language lessons that teach students about the Holocaust through testimony.
