    Not that I'm attempting to justify the killing of humans, either civilian or otherwise, but the anti-Serbian sentiment which pervaded the citizenry of the Croatian state during WWII must be contextualized. Contrary to Serbian chauvanist propaganda which endeavors to portray and villify the entire Croatian nation as being "genocidal", the anti-Serb feeling of most Croats is directly traced to the situation characterizing Royalist Yugoslavia 1928-1941 which has been deemed by impartial historians as "Royalist Fascism". In this state Croatians, and for that matter, anyone non-Serbian was persecuted for being "the other". Such prejudicial, state sponsored activity was even openly condemned by intellectuals such as Albert Einstein.
