Dragoljub “Draža” Mihailović, was a  general of the “Yugoslav Army in the Fatherland”   a royalist/nationalist Serbian collaborationist Axis militia movement during WWII.  The “Yugoslav Army in the Fatherland” is also known as the Chetnik movement. The Chetniks were responsible for Genocide in Eastern Bosnia in WWII. After Tito’s Partizans came to power in 1945, war criminal Draza Mihajlovic hid in the mountains in Eastern Bosnia. He was captured by Yugoslav Secret Agency OZNA on 13.03.1946.  On 15.07.1946 he was sentence to death for crimes against humanity. He was shot by a firing squad on 18. 07.1946.

Draža Mihajlović's infamous "Instrukcije" ("Instructions") of 1941, ordering the ethnic cleansing of Bosniaks, Croats, and others.

“The mission of our units is:

  1. The struggle for the freedom of all of our people under the scepter of His Majesty, the King Peter II;
  2. The creation of Greater Yugoslavia, and within it Greater Serbia, ethnically clean within the borders of Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Srem, Banat, and Bačka;
  3. The struggle for the incorporation into our social structure of those non-liberated Slovenian territories under Italy and Germany (Trieste, Gorica, Istria, and Kaernten), as well as Bulgaria and Northern Albania with Shkodra;
  4. The cleansing of all national minorities and anti-state elements from state territory;
  5. The creation of direct common borders between Serbia and Montenegro, as well as Serbia and Slovenia by cleansing the Bosniak population from Sandžak, and the Muslim and Croat populations from Bosnia and Herzegovina;
  6. The punishment of all Croats and Muslims who have mercilessly destroyed our people in these tragic days;
  7. The settlement of the areas cleansed of national minorities and anti-state elements by Serbs and Montenegrins (to be considered are poor, nationally patriotic, and honest families).

There may be no collaboration with the communists [Yugoslav Partisans], as they are fighting against the Dynasty and in favor of socialist revolution. Albanians, Bosniaks, and Ustaše are to be treated in accordance with their merit for the horrendous crimes against our population, i.e., they are to be turned over to the People’s Court. The Croats living on the territory under Italian occupation are to be treated based on their disposition at the given moment.”
