Andrija Hebrang


Ivica Skomrak (1921-1992)

He was arrested in Zagreb in November 1948. The Zagreb investigators asked him about the last time he had seen Hebrang and what the latter had been telling him about Croatian borders. They kept telling him Andrija Hebrang was at Jasenovac with you.

I claimed that Andrija had never been at Jasenovac. Then an investigator from Belgrade arrived, asking that Skomrak sign a paper stating that Andrija had been at Jasenovac, which Skomrak refused to do. After nine months of “investigation” he was sentenced to two years on the Goli otok island. He had been at the Jasenovac concentration camp between mid-1942 and August 1944.
