OFFICIAL NAZI NUMBERS ON SLAUGHTERED SERBS IN NAZI CROATIA IN WW2 German generals issued reports on the number of victims as the war progressed. German military commanders gave different figures for the number of Serbs, Jews and others killed by the Ustaše in the territory of the Independent State of Croatia. They circulated figures of 400,000 Serbs (Alexander Löhr); 350,000 Serbs (Lothar Rendulic); around 300,000 (Edmund Glaise von Horstenau) in 1943; "600–700,000 until March 1944" (Ernst Fick); and 700,000 (Massenbach).
Hermann Neubacher calculates: The recipe, received by the Ustaše leader and Poglavnik, the president of the Independent State of Croatia, Ante Pavelić, resembled genocidal intentions from some of the bloodiest religious wars: "A third must become Catholic, a third must leave the country, and a third must die!" This last point of the Ustaše program was accomplished. When prominent Ustaše leaders claimed that they slaughtered a million Serbs (including babies, children, women and old men), that is, in my opinion, a boastful exaggeration. On the basis of the reports submitted to me, I believe that the number of defenseless victims slaughtered to be three-quarters of a million. Italian generals reported similar figures to their commanders.
The Vatican's sources also speak of similar figures, for example 350,000 ethnic Serbs slaughtered by the end of 1942 (Eugene Tisserant). For Jasenovac itself, the Nazi intelligence service, Sicherheitsdienst, in a report from Zagreb in 1943., stated that the Ustaše had killed 120,000 people in Jasenovac, 80,000 in Stara Gradiška, and 20.000 in other Ustaše concentration camps. The Ustaše themselves gave more exaggerated estimates of the number of people they killed. Vjekoslav "Maks" Luburić, the commander-in-chief of all the Croatian camps, announced the great "efficiency" of the Jasenovac camp at a ceremony on 9 October 1942. During a banquet that followed, he reported: We have slaughtered here at Jasenovac more people than the Ottoman Empire was able to do during its occupation of Europe.
