Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, April 20, 2020 – The film “The Diary of Diana B.” will premiere on TV on April 22, commemorating the escape of the last group of internees from the WW2 Jasenovac camp, and a project “From Film to Museum”, dedicated to Diana Budisavljević, a great humanitarian who helped save children during the war, is underway.

The Hulahop production company said that the film would premiere on TV on the first channel of the Croatian Radio Television (HRT), on the occasion of the remembrance day for all victims and survivors of that Ustasha camp, and the same evening it will be broadcast on the first channel of Radio Television Serbia.

The future virtual museum will showcase unpublished material collected and created over many years of historical research and work on the film, and the completion of the project is planned for autumn.

“The Diary of Diana B.” is a feature-length documentary “about the best people in the worst of times”, among whom was certainly Diana Budisavljević, who together with a few friends organised an action that saved over 10,000 children from certain death by the end of World War II.

“The Diary of Diana B.” premiered at last year’s Pula Film Festival, where after eight minutes of applause from the audience it won as many as six awards, including the most important one – the Grand Golden Arena for Best Festival Film.

The film has so far won a total of 15 awards, and it played in cinemas all over Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, where it was viewed by over 65,000 people.
