and children) on February 13, 1943. May their souls rest in peace.
he Chetnik apologists like to argue that Draza Mihailovic didn't know anything about genocidalcampaigns his forces were committing against the Bosniak Muslim population of Bosnia-Herzegovina.A closer look at the above document reveals that Draza Mihailovic was well aware of genocide hisforces were committing in 1943.In the above document, Serbian Chetnik Commander Pavle Djurisic reported directly to the Chetnik General Draza Mihailovic about the "successes" of Chetnik operations in the extermination campaignsagainst the Bosniak Muslim population in the area of Pljevlje, Cajnice, and Foca region. This is theregion of
where Srebrenica is located.In his briefing to the Serb General Draza Mihailovich, the Chetnik Commander Pavle Djurisic writes,(note: this is a translation of key points from Serbian cyrillic), quote:
All Moslem villages in three mentioned locations [municipalities of Pljevlje, Cajnice,and Foca] were burned down, and not even one home remained intact.... Duringmilitary operations, we engaged in total destruction of Moslem population withoutregard to their sex or age. Our victims include 22 dead, of which 2 by accident, and 32wounded. We killed about 1,200 Muslim soldiers and about 8,000 of their women,elderly and children.
Therefore, it is perfectly clear that Draza Mihajlovich knew what was going on, but he did nothing tostop the genocide of Bosniak Muslim civilians. He was complicit in Genocide against the Bosniak Muslim population of Podrinje in 1943.
While the Serbian Chetniks admited killing 9,200 people inthis genocide, the documented killings show close to 20,000 Bosniaks massacred, 98% of thembeing civilian men, women, children, and elderly.

Attempts to Deny 1943 Genocide
This genocide of Bosniak Muslim population in Podrinje occured in February of 1943. Since then, theleftist apologist genocide deniers have been actively denying any wrong-doings of Serbian Chetnik forces who collaborated with Nazi fascists in World War II. The most vocal Draza Mihajlovic'sapologist and opinionist (he doesn't deserve to be called historian) -
- even came upwith a list of philosophical reasons attacking the evidence against Chetnik crimes. In his book
"DrazaMihailovic and the Rise of the Chetnik Movement, 1941–1942
", Lucien Karchmar devotes his study inapologizing for Draza Mihailovich's crimes and dismissing each piece of historical evidence presentedas a fraud or forgery. That's exactly how Chetnik-apologists write history to justify, downplay or denycrimes of Chetniks against the Bosniak Muslim population of Bosnia-Herzegovina; not to mentionChetnik collaboration with Nazi fascists.Instead of reading Lucien Karchmar's make-belief stories about Chetnik innocence, one might read the book written by a respected
Serbian historian Nikola P. Ilic
who did a great job documentingcollaboration of Chetniks with Fascists. The book is titled (in Serbian) "
Kolaboracija Cetnika saOkupatorima i Kvislinzima u Srbiji.
