Stepinac protested to the government. 33 He was arrested and tried in September 1946 and given sixteen years’ hard labour. His arrest was a symptom of the general process of sovietization which was imposed upon Croatia in the immediate post-war years. However, he was imprisoned in conditions of reasonable comfort and released in December 1951. Made a cardinal by the Vatican in 1952, he lived in internal exile in his home village of Kra‰iç until his death in 1960 when he was buried in Zagreb Cathedral.

When the new state of Croatia was declared in 1941, and after Maãek had refused to collaborate with the Germans, the Italians sent the Ustashe émigrés back to Zagreb to form a puppet fascist government in Croatia. Although there was some initial enthusiasm for the new government and for the idea of an independent state, the enthusiasm soon subsided. The new government was unable to mobilize support from the peasants, as the Croatian Peasant Party kept a neutral stance. The influence of the Ustashe was especially weak in Slavonia, the stronghold of the Peasant Party in Croatia.
