Dara of Jasenova

Set in the 1940s, the film follows young Dara (Biljana Čekić) in Croatia as she comes face-to-face with the horrors of the Holocaust era after she is sent with her mother and siblings to the concentration camp complex known as Jasenovac. The facility was the only operational death camp during World War II not created or run by the Germans, but its overseers were no less ruthless or cruel. Overseen by vicious emissaries of the fascist Ustase government, the camp was used to murder Serbs, Jews and Roma people—and re-educating the few children deemed worthy of rehabilitation. As unspeakable atrocities unfold all around her, young Dara must summon tremendous courage to protect her infant brother from a terrible fate, to safeguard her own survival and to plot a precarious path toward freedom.
