  2. Lenard said, "Heck he even had a catholic burial and rites in a catholic church in New York."

    Wrong, as usual, Lennie.

    Tesla's funeral service was held at the Episcopal Cathedral of Saint John the Divine with the Serbian Orthodox priest and the Episcopalian clergy of the Cathedral officiating.

  3. You Serbs can come to Croatia like you do in large numbers

    Complete lie, howewer tens of thousands of croat women flock in Belgrade every single weekend, I wonder why is that?And one last question, since you claim Tesla to be a croat do you think that the rest of the krajina serbs that you ethnically cleansed 95 are croats too?Newsflash, they dont share your opinion they are as hardcore serbs as Tesla was stating numerous times that he was proud of his serb nationality. Only to you a son of an orthodox priest can be a croat.
    Nikola Tesla was a prolific inventive genius, poet, and a humanitarian visionary. He was born in Croatia, of Serbian heritage, on July 10, 1856, the son of an Orthodox priest.His father, Milutin Tesla, was a Serbian Orthodox priest.[15] Tesla's mother, Đuka Tesla (née Mandić), whose father was also a Serbian Orthodox priest,[16] had a talent for making home craft tools, mechanical appliances, and the ability to memorize Serbian epic poems. Đuka had never received a formal education. Nikola credited his eidetic memory and creative abilities to his mother's genetics and influence.[17][18] Tesla's progenitors were from western Serbia, near Montenegro.[19]

  4. . You Serbs can come to Croatia like you do in large numbers and kneel at the statue of Nikola Croatian and see his home.

    That will be hard since you and your fellow barbarians levelled his house to the ground during the last war and exterminated what was left of his family. Oh and about that catholic funeral, I caught you in a lie on that one now didnt I?I hardly think they would play a serb nationalist song like tamo daleko on a catholic funeral and I hardly believe that the son of an orthodox priest would have a orthodox funeral. How delusional are you?

The only kind of union Serbs make is the criminally violent murderous thieving ones. You Serbs can come to Croatia like you do in large numbers and kneel at the statue of Nikola Croatian and see his home. Like these delusional Serbs from Switzerland.

    The only delusional barbarians of the balkans are the croats. You hate serbs but when it comes to prominent ones like Tesla you claim that they are croats even if the person in question is a son of a serb orthodox priest and even if he claimed 1000 times that he is proud of his serb nationality. I can tell you one thing, my mother is from the same region as Tesla and you can tell serbs from there that they are everything as long as u dont call them croats. Thats how much they feel croat and thats how much they hate you. Hell even Ivo Andric felt so ashamed of being a croat that he declared himself as a serb. Tesla was a serb and there are no such thing as orthodox croats or maybe you think that the croats living in Serbia are catholic serbs?

    I forgot to mention that there were three Roman Emperors born in what is today Croatia so they must be Croatians too. Then all the prehistoric peoples such as Neanderthals must Croatian Neanderthals.

    Yes Telsa was a Croat because he was born in Lika. According to your earlier attachments there was a kingdom called Croatia and Slavonia and when you look at a map it did not cover Lika etc.

    Mestrovic’s best works revolved around SERBIAN HISTORY and not Croatian which is very funny considering you Croats have such a rich history. Then there is the matter Andric who was of mixed background and when interviewed by the man who translated his book Bridge on the River Drina, Andric said that he was a Bosnian Serb. It’s not our problem that Andric called all Croats vagabonds in his book.

    But lease tell us all how Croatia came to exist after 1914. Tell us all the many battles the Croats fought to win their freedom. This should be good for a laugh or two.

    I note your pils are wearing off as your English is declining into gibberish.

    Let's say he didn't, are you saying that all those Serbs you expelled from Croatia were actually Croatian Orthodox?
    What about all those Albanians in Kosovo, are they Kosovars and not Albanian. I would love to see you tell them that to their face.

    How about all those Catholics in Serbia? Are they not Croatian and if not I would love to see you tell them they are actually Catholic Serbs.

    Serbs have lived all over former Yugoslavia longer than you guys have and that's a fact. Actually you are closer to being from Serbian stock than any Serb being from Croatian stock because so many Serbs were forced for convert during WW2 but never the other way around.

    Think about it. You might be hating yourself.

  15. For God's sake this is getting ridiculous. Tesla was an ethnic Serb from the Krajina region of Austria-Hungary. He attended higher learning in Budapest and Vienna before moving to the United States, where he became the genius he was. To argue he was "Croat" because he comes from a region that is now Croatia, has the same logic as arguing he was Hungarian or German because he at one point lived in Budapest and Vienna as a student.

  18. @ the truth and Lenard.

    If Tesla didn't identify as Serbian and didn't care at all about folk poetry, then why did he translate the poems of Serbian poet Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj? [link]
    His favourite song reportedly was Tamo Daleko, a Serbian folk song, which he requested be played at his funeral. [link]
    If he was Croatian, then why did he preoccupy himself with Serbian culture? Smiljana in those days was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. There were and still are Serbs living in what is now technically Croatia. He eventually became an American citizen. Perhaps he should be viewed as that, rather than Croats splitting hairs with Serbs. Do your research people before you make emotionally charged erroneous statements that don't do anyone any good.

    Just admit that Crotians never did anything well and move on.

    “Their go the Serbs on a tanjet of stealing a Croatian.

    There is an old saying which goes like “if there were no Croats and dogs in the world then who would there be to bark?

    This is why Croat academics are the laughing stock of the world because they peddle crap like that mentioned by Lenard. However, as Tesla was a Croat as you claim then why when approached by Croat authorities have the US government refused permission to claim him as a Croat? The Americans stated “when Tesla was born Croatia NEVER existed”, It was known as the Austrian military frontier.

    I had no idea that there were so many Croat scientists, many with Italian and Hungarian namew names too. I am curious to know if Leonardo Da Vinci was also a Croat. Did the Croatian Egyptians build the Pyramids and the Croatians Assyrians construct the famous hanging gardens of Babylon too?

    I note that along the Dalmatian Coast the architecture is the same as in Italy. Was it done by Croatian Romans?

    My favourite story is how the Potomac River in Washington got its name. According to some Croat academics a couple Croats jumped ship and lived amongst the Indians and they gave the river its name after a region in Dalmatia.

That makes me Serbian doesn't matter what country it is or was.If I smell Serbian,look Serbian,swear in Serbian and have Serb parents I'm a Serb and thus was Tesla.

  27. "Where is Telsa home in Serbia did he ever even step a foot in Serbia?"

    Yes he did. He went to a Serbian monastery in Fruska Gora to recover from Cholera. That is where he convalesced. He also referred to himself as a Serbs in comments such as "We Serbs like to sing, but no one ever listens" when he was referring to Serbian poems.
    His will also left his belongings to his Serbian relatives which is why it's now in Belgrade.
    His Serbian relatives no longer live in Croatia - the last were cleansed during Operation Storm.
    He has some living relatives in the U.S. and Canada and they are all Serbs.
    He also wrote to a U.S. paper defending the ethnic Serb Yugoslav king during the attacks by the Croats and the way he wrote about the Croats you could see that he thought them a different people from himself.

  28. It's very humorous to read Lenard's drivel. Croats will always have a complex with regards to Serbs, because Serbs are just better and superior in everything. We are free and independent people, unlike the Austo-Hungarian horse cleaners which the Croats are, and always will be.
    As for 'the truth', he speaks like a true squatter and jealous usurper. I suggest he gets together with Lenard - it would be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

  29. Pointing to Tesla's Serb origin and the fact that he grew up in his hometown of Smiljane by the side of his father who was an Orthodox priest and mother who used to put him asleep and wake him up with Serbian folk poems about the Battle of Kosovo, Nikolić said that, no matter how far away physically he was from the country of his birth, the brilliant scientist never forgot the answer to the question who he was and which nation and heritage he belonged to. Their go the Serbs on a tanjet of stealing a Croatian. Born in Smiljane Croatia went to school in Croatia and gratuated. A visit to Croatian capital Zagreb, and gave a lecture about alternating current. On that occasion Tesla said: "As a son of my homeland, I feel it is my duty to help the city of Zagreb in every respect with my advice and work").
    The fist electrefied city in the world Sibenik Croatia. We have many religons in Croatia Orthodox is one of many. If he was born in Serbia he would of been used for canon fauder by the Serbian despot kings. Or just raised pigs as a farmer maybe succesfully like your king then you become a king in Serbia with those qualifications. Like Niolić a grave digger with some embolished resume lies walla president.
    Croatians invented many things the world uses [link]. Where is Telsa home in Serbia did he ever even step a foot in Serbia. Serbs you have to stop stealing no wonder Serbs nikname in ex Yugoslavia was Mexicano banditos.
