During World War II, many Serbs were deported from Croatia—some to Serbia and others to Germany. The order to deport Serbs did not originate with the Croatian government. According to the Nuremberg Tribunal, a conference was held in the German Legation presided over by Siegfried Kasche, "at which it was decided forcibly to evacuate the Slovenes to Croatia and Serbia and the Serbs from Croatia into Serbia. This decision results from a telegram from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Number 389, dated 31 May 1941".
He reported to Berlin on April 18, 1944 that "Croatia is one of the countries in which the Jewish problem has been solved".
After the war, Kasche was returned to Yugoslavia by the Allies. He was tried by the Supreme Court of the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia in May 1947, convicted, and executed by hanging on June 7, 1947.
