The author presents the ways of collecting data on the victims of the Second World War in Slovenia, especially those used by the Commission for the Investigation of the War Crimes Committed by the Occupiers and their Collaborators in Slovenia. He stresses the crucial significance of the 1989 round table, "The Victims of the Second World War in Slovenia", which was a great step towards integral treatment of all the Second World War victims, without classification as "good" and "bad". He quotes some regional lists of the victims of the both sides and presents the project of the Institute for Contemporary History for establishing the total number of the Second World War victims in Slovenia.
