In the following discussion the author describes and analyses the main emphases with regard to the issue of the use of violence by the Slovenian partisan movement and its communist leadership, especially in the Ljubljana province in the period from the beginning of this movement in the late summer of 1941 until the middle of 1942. This violence is presented from the viewpoint of the assessments of its Slovenian opponents, that is, various anti-communist subjects like parties, associations and exposed individuals. The main source for identifying the aforementioned evaluations is the anti-communist illegal press and propaganda material as well as reports made by illegal anti-partisan authorities to the King's government-in-exile in London, especially minister Miha Krek. In the spring of 1942 these subjects, except for the group called Stražarji (Guard), have not yet considered resisting the partisan violence with armed Slovenian forces.
