The Attitutude of the Authorities towards the Cultural Activity of Slovene Emigrants
The party which came to power in Slovenia in 1945 tried to obliterate all traces of the past national culture. Part of this policy was to limit or even prevent the access of the Slovenes in Slovenia to the cultural activity of Slovenes living on the other side of the border and in emigration. The greatest concern of the Communist authorities was the cultural activity of the Slovene political emigrants. Slovenes at home who wanted to acquire the works of authors from this cultural circle encountered considerable problems. In 1945, stocks of the old books were destroyed and anyone wanting to acquire the works by emigrants published abroad after the war had to obtain a special import permit. In Slovenia, the blacklisted books and journals were collected in special library departments, closed to the wider public, which only became accessible in the 1980's.
