    ZAGREBAČKA PRAVEDNICA DIANA BUDISAVLJEVIĆ: Hrvatski Oscar Schindler bila je žena


    Kažu da rat iz ljudi izvlači sve najgore i sve najbolje. Jedan od sporednih likova srpskog filma 'Lepa sela lepo gore' na ovu tvrdnju postavlja pitanje: "Bogati, šta je to najbolje?" Ovaj tekst pravi je odgovor na cinizam sporednog filmskog lika. Drugi svjetski rat ono najbolje u Zagrebu je našao i liku Diane Budisavljević, žene koja je od sigurne smrti spasila 12.000 djece s Kozare i Korduna. Riječ je o najvećem humanitarnom poduhvatu onog vremena, što ga je poduzeo neki pojedinac, možda i u svjetskim okvirima. Stoga nikako ne propustite upoznati jednu od najplemenitijih Zagrepčanki u povijesti grada

    She indeed deserves to be better known, but.....


    Looking at the Hilary/Wasserman-Schulz happening in Philly, is there not right now a more urgent subject that people should be thinking about?

    Nah, it's just you!:rolleyes:

    Only you can't see there is always time for people like her, as well as all the rest of current affairs... But conservatives no longer surprise me with their black-white metaphysics...:)
