You betrayed the Party just when you should have helped it*

* (Statement of the woman commandant of the Goli Otok Camp, Marija Zelić)



Alternating between island of Goli otok and the neighbouring island of Sveti Grgur from 1950 to 1956 there was a camp for political prisoners through which passed more than 850 women accused of having cominform connections.

With an exceptionally cruel punishment system, in which the women inmates were forced to assume the role of torturer, the camp was a place of suffering and humiliation.

The harassment and police surveillance of the accused women continued even after they had been let out of the camp.
