0139 | Obituary | Ante Glavaš



An obituary for Ante Glavaš, a member of the SS Division "Prinz Eugen", killed at the beginning of the second phase of Operation "White", between Bosanski Petrovac and Drvar, on 26 February 1943. Also participating in these battles shoulder to shoulder with the "Prinz Eugen" Division was the German-Croatian "Devil's Division" (369th Infantry Division), in which a certain Ljubomir Glavaš served – whose son Branimir, half a century later, would become a well known politician and a general, and be convicted as a war criminal. Both Ante and Ljubomir were born in the village of Drinovci (the first one in 1907 and the other in 1921) and they were most likely blood-related as well. In the obituary, printed in the "Prinz Eugen" Printing House in Belgrade, there is the following inscription: "In memory of SS-Schütze Ante Glavaš from Drinovci, who, on 26 February 1943, near Drvar, at the age of 36, for the Führer, nation and homeland, found a hero's death." On the back, as usual, there are a few morale-boosting words, some suitable poetry and a short prayer.

Osmrtnica za Antu Glavaša, pripadnika SS-divizije "Princ Eugen", poginulog na početku druge faze operacije "Belo", između Bosanskog Petrovca i Drvara, 26. februara 1943. godine. Rame uz rame sa "Princ Eugen" divizijom, u ovim borbama je učestvovala i nemačko-hrvatska "Vražja divizija" (369. pešadijska divizija), u kojoj je služio izvesni Ljubomir Glavaš – čiji će sin Branimir, pola veka kasnije, postati poznati političar i general, i biti osuđen kao ratni zločinac. I Ante i Ljubomir su rodom bili iz sela Drinovaca (prvi je rođen 1907. a drugi 1921. godine) i najverovatnije su bili i u krvnom srodstvu. Na osmrtnici, štampanoj u "Princ Eugen" štampariji u Beogradu, stoji sledeći natpis: "U spomen na vojnika Antu Glavaša iz Drinovaca, koji je 26. februara 1943. kod Drvara u 36. godini života, za firera, narod i domovinu, našao junačku smrt." Na poleđini se, kao i obično, nalazi nekoliko reči za podizanje morala, malo prikladne poezije i kratka molitva.
