Kragujevac and Kriva Reka massacres – what really happened?

The German III Battalion of the 749th Infantry Regiment was ordered to break through from Kragujevac in the direction of Gornji Milanovac and liberate the 6th Company from the 920th Regiment, which had been captured by Draža’s units, the Draža’s JVuO (“Yugoslavian Army in The Fatherland”) who worked for the English. On October 16, 1941, this motorized German column was attacked between the villages of Bare and Ljuljci, by JVuO and Partisans (communists) together. On the JVuO side, Major Miodrag Palosevic, Captain Duja Smiljanic and Milos Glisic, Lieutenant Stojanovic and Lieutenant Mojsilovic took part in the attack, and on the Communist side, Raja Nedeljkovic, commander of the Kragujevac Partisan Detachment (whose political commissar was Vladimir Dedijer), Professor Dragutin Markovic, student Radisav Lazarevic and farmer Miloje Simovic took part in the attack, they also were communist leaders in the area.

The attack on the Germans was the idea of the people of Ravna Gora, who were under Draža’s command, they worked for the English as mentioned above. In his war diary, Lieutenant Zvonimir Vuckovic (a Croat who continued to cooperate with the Communists in 1942, when most of the people of Ravna Gora parted ways with them) says on page 43 of the Kragujevac Tragedy: “Paloš and I were determined to attack Kragujevac” (this is about Major Miodrag Palošević). In order to have more people for the attack, as Vuckovic says in his diary, they (Vuckovic and Palosevic who were in the village of Bare in the middle of the Milanovac-Kragujevac road) went to the village of Toponica faster, where Vladimir lived in the house of his stepfather Dr. Kicevac Dedijer in order to agree with him on communist support in that “action”.

When the Germans wanted to take their killed and wounded comrades, the communists and JVuO wanted to stop them. That is when they came out from behind the hidden positions and opened immediate fire on the Germans, preventing them from their intention of freeing captives. The Germans returned fire, killing Lieutenant Stojanovic and Lieutenant Mojsilovic. The Germans had to retreat towards Kragujevac, leaving many German soldiers behind.

The attackers, manipulated by the communist and English propaganda, then carried out a horrific massacre against the captured Germans. They cut off their sexual organs, then put them in their mouths, broke their legs and arms, pulled out their eyes and pulled out their tongues.

Kosta Mušicki, the commander of the Serbian Volunteer Corps (they worked with the Germans), has testified that in the Kragujevac massacre, the Serbian volunteers managed to save a large amount of Serbs from the wrath of German soldiers, replacing the Gypsies to be shot instead of Serbs. This was necessary, because of the “100 for 1” law that was later canceled by Hermann Neubacher, who was appointed as the leading German foreign ministry official for the Balkans and supported the idea of Greater Serbia. He worked together with Milan Nedić on the SveSrbija project.
