In my thesis I will be presenting emigration from Slovenia after World War II. The wave of post-war emigration consisted mainly of political refugees who were displaced or left home on their own. They emigrated because of opposition to the new socialist regime in Yugoslavia, involvement with the occupier before the war, or because they were in contact with someone who cooperated with them. They immigrated mainly to the US, Argentina, Canada and Australia. In addition to political emigration, the thesis will also address emigration for social and economic reasons. Economic emigration was most numerous and extensive in the 1950s and 1960s. In the early sixties, Yugoslavia’s borders reopened, triggering a new wave of emigration from the country. In the new countries, Slovenian communities were formed, and various Slovenian organizations were created. They took care of connecting Slovenes abroad and preserving Slovene culture and language. The societies published their own newspapers and newsletters, which kept the Slovenian and foreign, local population informed.
