Kosovo is unveiling a plaque commemorating its Jews who perished in the Holocaust.

Prime Minister Hashim Thaci was scheduled to unveil the plaque on Thursday in Pristina at the site of the country’s last synagogue, across the street from the parliament.

“This is the place where the last Synagogue of Kosovo stood until 1963,” the plaque reads in Albanian, Hebrew, English and Serbian.“This plaque is raised in memory of Kosovo Jews that perished in Nazi camps during Holocaust. People of Kosovo will never forget them.”

Among the scheduled speakers at the event are Jason Steinbaum, the chief of staff for Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the ranking Democrat on the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, who has been a champion of Kosovo independence. Also speaking will be an Israeli representative.

The unveiling takes place during a Week of Tolerance and Reconciliation in Kosovo that includes an interfaith conference with guests from the Serbian Orthodox Church in Serbia. The conference is taking place six weeks after Kosovo and Serbia initialed an agreement resolving many of the issues outstanding since Kosovo’s 2008 declaration of independence from Serbia.

A US-led alliance intervened on Kosovo’s behalf in 1999 after the late Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic escalated attacks on ethnic Albanians in the former Serbian province.

Kosovo Albanians are hypocrats.

In WW2 Kosovo Albanians formed an SS Skenderbeg division which sent all Kosovo Jews to the concentration camps.

Also, in 1999 Kosovo Albanians expelled the last Jews from Prishtina and Kosovo.

Now they are unveilin a Holocaust memorial.

They can fool others BUT cannot fool the Jews. One of the reasons why Israel will never recognize their fake state of kosovA.

Do not mind serv coward apes. He can not pay a visit to that memorial, since he can not enter the Republic of Kosova. Memorial clearly emphasizes the Albanian role in rescuing Jews during WWII while servs were happy to declare belgrade as 'judenfrei' city.

The last known remaining Jews of Prishtina - 13 of them, including the Belgrade-appointed leader of the Kosovo Jewish community - were spirited away by the JDC's Eliezri to Macedonia on June 26, 1999. The circumstances surrounding their departure are not entirely clear, but the leader of the community claims that he was essentially forced out at gunpoint by Albanian soldiers.

During World War II and the Holocaust, Kosovar Albanians killed 10,000-30,000 Kosovo Serbs and expelled 100,000. Kosovo-Metohija was made a part of a Greater Albania by Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. Hitler and Mussolini realized the Greater Albania ideology established by the 1878 League of Prizren. Albanian-settled areas of the Balkans - Kosovo-Metohija, western Macedonia, southern Montenegro - were incorporated in a Greater Albania. The Greater Albania Kosovar Albanian nationalist movement murdered Kosovo Serb civilians and took over their lands and houses. Kosovo Serb women were raped. Kosovo Serb Orthodox priests were arrested, tortured, and murdered. Serbian Orthodox churches and monasteries were attacked and destroyed. Serbian monuments, cemeteries, and gravestones were desecrated and demolished. The Greater Albania nationalist movement formed the Balli Kombetar, the Albanian Kosovo Committee, and the Skanderbeg Nazi SS Division, two-thirds of whose members were Kosovar Albanian Muslims. Kosovar Albanian Muslims played a major role in the Holocaust, the murder of European Jews. Kosovar Albanian Nazi SS troops participated in the roundup of Kosovo Jews who were later killed at Bergen-Belsen. What occurred in Kosovo during World War II was genocide. The mainstream accounts of World War II have censored and covered up the Kosovar Albanian role in the genocide against Kosovo Serbs and the role of Kosovar Albanians in the Holocaust. The Nazi past of Kosovo remains an untold story...

Jews very well know who were their killers. Serbia was with Allies in the World War II. Nedic ran just a pupet country. Serbian Government was oficially accepted as part of anti-hitleric coalition. Jews know who their murderers are! Serbs were protecting Jews. They even invited Jews of Serbia to join in the resistance against the Nazis. All other countries on the Balkans were with Nazis. They were Nazis and the most diabolical events in the history of mankind. Servants of the Beast.

Belgrade's Anti-Masonic exhibition of 1941-42

Nazi Germany occupied most of Yugoslavia by April 1941. After a Serbian uprising of July 1941, Gen. Hermann Bohme, was given emergency powers to govern the country. SS - Gruppenfuhrer Harold Turner and SS Untersturmfuhrer Fritz Stracke handled the administration of Serbia. Milan Nedic was the "nomial" local ruler, comparable to the collaborationist regime of Quisling in Norway.

Under the Nedic regime a heavily anti-semitic "Grand Anti-Masonic Exhibition" opened in occupied Belgrade on 22nd October 1941 and ended January 19, 1942. It was funded apparently by the German occupiers and supported by Nedic to intensify hatred against the Jews, although the title of the exhibit suggested the Masons (Masonic Orders had been closed in Germany). While Nedic was a supporter of the German plan for extermination of the Jews, Serbian partisan groups often tried to save Jews from victimization. The history of this period is complex, filled with mutual accusations regarding the role of perpetrators and rescuers.

The central theme was an alleged Jewish-Communist-Masonic plot for world domination, similar to propaganda once put out by the Tsarist secret police before the Russian revolution in the well-known forgeries The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Besides the exhibits at the exhibition, an enormous amount of propaganda material was prepared: over 200 thousand various brochures, 60 thousand posters, 100 thousand flyers, 108 thousand of samples of 9 different types of envelopes, 176 propaganda movie clips, four different postage stamps etc. Organizers advertised that "This concept of exhibition will be unique not only in Serbia and the Balkans, not only in southeastern Europe and Europe, but in the world."

The images on the posters shown in the exhibition were hardly new, and had been seen before in Germany during "The Eternal Jew" exhibitions in Munich and Vienna during 1937-1939. Serbian newspapers such as Obnova (Renewal) and Nasa Borba (Our Struggle) praised this exhibit, proclaiming that Jews were the ancient enemies of the Serbian people and that Serbs should not wait for the Germans to begin the extermination of the Jews. A few months later, Serbian authorities issued postage stamps commemorating the opening of this popular exhibit. These stamps, which juxtaposed Jewish and Serbian symbols (but did not contain Nazi symbols), portrayed Judaism as the source of world evil and advocated the humiliation and violent subjugation of Jews. The 20 posters shown here give a sense of the vile flavor of the exhibition and the theme of Jewish domination. Of special interest is the material showing alleged Jewish domination of the American Press and "Finance," particularly control of The New York Times.

This type of anti-Semitic propaganda is useful for seeing how art and propaganda posters in particular can help create the "other." Jews were both capitalists and communists at the same time, and the alleged secret force that dominated all aspects of European, indeed world economic life. Norman Cohn has described this as a "warrant for genocide."

This memorial is not enough for the thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of Jews killed by Serbs. A public apology like the Germans did will be better.
