The Role and the Character Liberation Front of the Slovenian Nation
Keywords:Liberation Front of Slovenian Nation, Communist Party of Slovenia, revolution, resistance, national liberation struggle
The Liberation Front Slovenian Nation (LF) was founded on 26 April 1941 on the basis of the pre-war association of the Communists with the left-wing groups from the Liberal, Catholic and cultural circles. The LF embodied the Slovene spirit of resistance which found its extreme expression in an armed struggle against the occupier. This gave the LF a character of a military as well as a political movement. Its ideo-political programme was originally characterized by an equidistant opposition to any form of imperialism and by the waiting for an opportunity to carry out the revolution. After Germany attacked the Soviet Union, and after being instructed by the Comintern to do so, the LF engaged in the national liberation struggle against the occupiers, to which it attached the social dimension throughout. From the very beginning, the Communist Party of Slovenia not only played a decisive role in the LF but was also its organizational backbone. The LF, in turn, strengthened the Communist organization.
