CroMe interview with Vera Winter

The female interviewee was born in 1923 in Bosnia. She was 18 years old when WWII started. During the war, she was captured and kept in an Ustashe prison in Petrinjska street. In 1947 she graduated as an economist and immediately found a job. But soon she was ordered to work for the Ministry in Belgrade, and in 1950 she was arrested because she was considered to have contacts with a spy. She was brought to Goli otok as a political prisoner. She goes into detail describing the daily life in this prisoners’ camp, where she was imprisoned until 1953. She reflects on the late fifties and the changing situation in former Yugoslavia during that period. It was only in 1989, when the old communist world was falling apart, that she dared to give an interview on the situation as she had experienced it in Goli otok.
