Between the Formal, Emotional and Conscious Membership of the Communist Party of Slovenia during the Second World War
Using the example of the Novo mesto district Communist Party school, the paper analyses the contrast between the desired model and the actual member of the Communist Party of Slovenia between 1941 and 1945. Under the particular circumstances of the occupation, an eagerness to fight for national liberation became a more important criterion for acceptance to Party membership than revolutionary fervour. The Party leadership attempted to compensate for the lack of the latter by organizing compulsory ideo-political education for new members during the war, so that their actions would be motivated by Communist revolution as well.
