Croatian president Stipe Mesic today expressed his fullest support for the Wiesenthal Center’s “Operation: Last Chance” project at a meeting at the Presidential Palace with the Center’s chief Nazi-hunter Dr. Efraim Zuroff immediately prior to the official launching of the project this morning at a special press conference in Zagreb.
President Mesic stressed two points in explaining the importance of “Operation: Last Chance.”
First of all, it is critical that those who committed the crimes of the Holocaust be held accountable and be brought to justice. Second, the very existence of such a project means that Nazi war criminals will not be able to sleep well at night and that is exactly as it should be.
Besides clearly expressing his support for “Operation: Last Chance,” President Mesic said that he stands ready to personally assist the initiative.
