Tomašnica is place of beautiful nature (hills, forests, vineyards, creeks and springs) and hospitable people. Tomašnica suffered a lot in World War II when 41 men died in war. Tomašnica is connected with village Zadobarje by a wooden bridge and children go to school in Zadobarje. People in Croatia and around Netretić are often called Brajci. In Tomašnica and that region of Croatia people talk with mixture of all three Croatian dialects and this mixed dialect is called brajski govor or govor ozaljskog književnog kruga. Many Tomaščani (people from Tomašnica) today live in Australia, Canada and some other countries in the world. They come back to Croatia during the summer to visit its fatherland.
World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. A state of total war emerged, directly involving more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. The major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease, and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
