Anti-Communist, Anti-Partisan Propaganda

Kako komunistična vlada izžema ruskega kmeta [How the communist government is squeezing the Russian farmer].

[Ljubljana, ca. 1944]. Octavo (22 × 16 cm). Single folded leaf with full-page drawing to first page; 7, [1] pp. A very good, uncut and unopened copy.

Anonymously published pamphlet on the dangers of Bolshevism, with a striking cover drawing showing a Red Army Commisar enslaving a group of farmers. The brochure states the Russian farmer to be the poorest, most abject farmer in the world and denounces such Slovenian politicians and intellectuals as Edvard Kardelj and Edvard Kocbek, who had supported the Partisans and Tito during WWII, and thus their pro-Soviet, communist-leaning outlook.

As of June 2021, KVK and OCLC only show the holdings in Slovenia.
