Dear Dr. Kraljic,
Thank you, thank you for the wonderful work you are doing for the Croatian people. We are Istrians born in Opatija.
I'll try and make this short. All I need to say that we never knew what happened to our uncle (Rudolf Ruzic) who was taken away during WW2 and never heard from again. Until one day my sister was surfing the internet and came upon an article and list you published &quot;Croatian Inmatesin Concentration Camps&quot; and there she found him. What an exciting time that was, phone calls were flying all over the place.
I know this is may be totally out of place but his daughter would love to get in touch with you.
She lives in Australia, I live in New York so she thought I would be able to reach you.
All I can do is write this note.
From the bottom of all our hearts we are very very grateful to you and all that you do.
All the Best,
Ann &amp; Family
