A former concentration camp commander arrived in Croatia, where he is scheduled to face a war crimes trial. From 1942 to 1944, Dinko Sakic was commandant at the Jasenovac concentration camp, where an estimated 500,000 Jews, Serbs and Gypsies were murdered under Croatia’s Nazi puppet regime. Sakic was extradited from Argentina, where he was discovered living earlier this year.
