Requiem for a Country

Requiem for a County, a political memoir with footnotes and annotations documenting historic events spanning two centuries, is an easy read as well as a schaolarly review and polemic on today's major controversies

Requiem for a Country is an easy reading selection to bring to the beach or savor 

in front of a fire. At the same time, it is an informative annotated book a history 

teacher or professor would assign to stimulate research and discussion in a course 

on Eastern Europe, Cold War, racial laws in Italy and other topics related to WWII. 


During the period the author was a foreign editor of Borba from 1946-53, he wrote 

several books in his native Serbo-Croatian. The Last Exile, a 2009 memoir, was his 

first title written in English. His second one, Requiem for a Country, completed on 

his 90th birthday, is about the dissolution of what used to be a harmonious coexistence of multiethnic people of Yugoslavia, as well as about the destruction of Sephardic life in Bosnia and the survival of Jews in Italy during the Holocaust.. 


A civilian internee of World War II, a fugitive in Rome from 1941-44, a partisan, and 

a member of Tito’s Yugoslav army, the author fought in the war against the German 

occupation of Yugoslavia. After the war, as a foreign editor of the Belgrade daily, Borba, he covered the 1946 Paris Peace Conference, the 1948 Tito-Stalin rift, and the 1951 Panmunjom talks to end the Korean war. In 1956, as a UN and US correspondent, he resigned over Tito's refusal to support the Hungarian Revolution, sought and was granted political asylum in the US.
