Summary/Abstract: An account of a crime aimed at human lives inevitably suppress¬es a testimony on robbery, even if it was an armed robbery. Prob¬ably, that is the only explanation for an overwhelming absence of serious work on collecting the evidence and critical retrospect of the disappearance of property acquired by Serbs in Croatia, Slavonia, and Dalmatia during the turbulent twentieth century. While there are hundreds of volumes published on genocide, with the tendency of permanent growth, when it comes to prop¬erty, there is – silence. It seems that the understanding of inevitability of this process has been widely accepted. The magnitude of this process is best illustrated by the proportion of ethnic Serbs in the population of Croatia: before the First World War, one in four inhabitants of Croatia was a Serb, while nowadays it is one in twenty-four, roughly estimated.
