Abstract

A LOOK AT POVERTY: FROM THE CORRESPONDENCE OF IVAN PUCELJ, MINISTER OF SOCIAL POLICY AND NATIONAL HEALTH OF THE KINGDOM OF YUGOSLAVIA

In her contribution the author focuses on poverty in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in the first half of the 1930s, when the global economic crisis also affected the first Yugoslav state profoundly. The author attempts to capture the perception of poverty in the time before World War II from the correspondence of Ivan Pucelj, Minister of Social Policy and National Health, who used to receive requests for monetary aid or help with finding employment from people with various social and educational backgrounds. The contribution focuses on the letters from General Rudolf Maister, painter Rihard Jakopič and cartoonist Hinko Smrekar, dating back to 1932 and 1933, which the author discovered in the legacy of the former Minister.
