Dissidents in Slovenia in Comparison to the Eastern European Communist States
After the dispute with the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia became more open towards the West than the other Eastern European communist countries. Consequently the question of dissidents in Yugoslavia is not completely identical to similar cases in other communist countries. Nevertheless we can also find intellectuals in Yugoslavia who felt the power of its repression apparatus because of what they said or wrote about the communist regime. The following work contains a detailed presentation of two examples from Slovenia and mentions the most widely known Yugoslav examples of dissidence. The comparison underlines the similarities and differences between dissidence in Slovenia/Yugoslavia and in other Eastern European communist countries.
