Mass graves of communist victims finally being unearthed
Source: International Herald Tribune
Many of the victims were Slovenians and Croats. But the mass graves undoubtedly include Serbian fighters from 3 SDK regiments that reached Austria, by that point controlled by the Allies. It was a British commander that gave his word that they would not be handed back to the communists. They were however loaded onto trains and sent back to Yugoslavia. Some managed to escape en route, some reached the communist concentration camps and escaped before their execution. The majority were tortured then killed. Luckily my grand-father was in one of the regiments that reached Italy. The men of those regiments were not handed back to the communists. The vast majority never saw their homeland again and spent the rest of their lives in countries such as America, Britain, and Germany.
