Kuharic, Franjo Cardinal

Croatian Roman Catholic cleric (b. April 15, 1919, Pribic, Yugos. - d. March 11, 2002, Zagreb, Croatia), served as a strong nationalist symbol for his countrymen during Croatia's 1991 secession from Yugoslavia and the war that ensued (1991 - 95). In his role as archbishop of Zagreb (1970 - 97) and, thus, Roman Catholic primate of Croatia, Kuharic condemned religious intolerance and violence against Serbs and Muslims.
