Dara Of Jasenovac Opens Up History Of A Concentration Camp In Croatia

The Serbian film Dara of Jasenovac is listed in the Academy Awards submission for Best International Feature. This film exploits the Jasenovac concentration camp that has been overlooked in history. Today, it is still unknown how many lives were lost while this concentration was active.

The Synopsis 

In 1940s Croatia, 10-year-old Dara (Biljana Cekic) comes face-to-face with the horrors of the Holocaust era after she is sent with her mother and siblings to the concentration camp complex known as Jasenovac. Overseen by vicious emissaries of the fascist Ustase government, the facility, the only operational death camp during World War II not created or run by the Germans, is tasked with murdering Serbs, Jews and Roma people-and re-educating the few children deemed worthy of rehabilitation. As unspeakable atrocities unfold all around her, young Dara must summon tremendous courage to protect her infant brother from a terrible fate, to safeguard her own survival and to plot a precarious path toward freedom.

Dara of Jasenovac was written by Nasa Drakulic and directed by Predrag Peter Antonijevic. The cast is composed by Cast: Biljana Cekic, Anja Stanic, Zlatan Vidovic, Luka Saranovic, Jakov Saranovic, Simon Saranovic, Sandra Ljubojevic, Nikola Radulj, Rajko Lukac, Vesna Kljajic Ristovic, Nikolina Friganovic, Igor Dordevic, Natasa Ninkovic, Marko Pipic

Below is a clip of Dara of Jasenovac. It shows Dara in a room with children when she is approached by a woman. The woman informs her a woman has been taken and told to lie about it, because it’s better that way. As it seems Dara is also being lied to in an attempt to help her survive.

 

Dara Jasenovac opens in select theaters on February 5, 2021.
