So-called Independent State of Croatia (NDH) represented a typical example of puppet state hat has been established with the wholehearted help of the Axis Powers. It was maintained due to the support of the Axis, but also due to the terror and genocide over innocent citizens. So-called Independent State of Croatia was based on postulates of Ustashe ideology. In order to accomplish the basic goal, i.e. establishing of the autonomous, autochthonous, independent state where the Croatian people would be the only master of the Croatian land, it was necessary to eliminate the Serbs. Serbs in Croatia were considered the greatest enemy of the Croatian people, which means that such a retrograde politics had a firm support and blessing from the Catholic Church and Vatican, regardless the support of the Ustashe movement. Simultaneously, the establishment of the NDH was materialization of the lifetime idea of the Vatican on Croatia as “Antemurale Christianitatis”, i.e. mighty bastion against Christianity remained from the Eastern Byzantine.
