Concentration camps as a form of repression against all those who were considered unsuitable or undesirable in the Independent State of Croatia (Nezavisna Država Hrvatska, NDH) were first established in April 1941. During the four years of their operation, until April 1945, tens of thousands of people were imprisoned there, most of them civilians. The vast majority of them would not come out of the camps alive. In terms of the area it covered, the number of prisoners it held, and the number of people who were murdered there, the biggest camp in the territory controlled by the NDH was the one in Jasenovac.

What was the character of the Jasenovac camp? Who were the inmates? How many people were killed in the camp? Answers to these and many other questions may be found in the following text.
