(E) Question about Croatian refugees sent from Croatia to El Shat, Egypt
Croatian refugees sent from Croatia to El Shat
I have a dear friend who was one of the many Croatian refugees sent from Croatia to El Shat, Egypt during WWII. She has photos and memorabilia from her time there, along with vivid recollections. She is deeply grateful for the care and comfort they were afforded in their years there.
She remembers that a Croatian-American, from Chicago, had visited the camp and filmed a documentary, and wondered if anyone out there might know what became of it. He was a radio broadcaster in Chicago and his surname was Marcan (Marchan) or something close to it.
Does anyone know whether a book was ever published on the subject of these years Croatians spent in El Shat. I find it fascinating and historically significant. I do know that a large memorial was erected in El Shat to mark this camp, but would like to find out more about any recorded history of it.
Yes, many letters have been sent and some of them published, but we didn't have the possibility to ad comments at the bottom of the article in the old CROWN setup. So, I wouldn't mind you to raise the same question again. Please do.
