Abstract

After Italy occupied Ljubljana in April 1941, the fuel supply became limited, resulting in tin increased demand and price rise. This was not the only problem. During the war, due to worsening transport conditions and an ever growing need for coal by the railways, most of the coal transported to Ljubljana was intended for industry. Households were forced to use mainly firewood for their needs. Towards the end of the war firewood became a very scarce commodity in depots, hue! vouchers became practically useless. The citizens of Ljubljana had to fend for themselves as best they could.
