This is the list of Croatian Righteous Among the Nations. 115 Croatians were honored with this title by the state of Israel for saving Jews during World War II. One of the most notable, Sister Amadeja Pavlović (28 January 1895 – 26 November 1971), was the Superior of the Croatian province of the Sisters of Mercy of the Holy Cross in Đakovo from 1943-55.[1] She rescued Zdenka Grunbaum, then a ten year old girl from Osijek; Grunbaum's family was killed in Đakovo.[2]

Grunbaum later moved to America, and started the initiative to have Pavlović recognized as Righteous Among the Nations. Pavlović was recognized as Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem in 2008; Croatian president Stjepan Mesić attended the ceremony.[3][2]
