Slovenian Newspapers in the Library of Congress

Yugoslav Newspapers in English

From 1945 through 1991, Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia and thus some of its newspaper content was covered by Summary of the Yugoslav Press. Most former-Yugoslav newspapers have not been translated into English. However, Summary of the Yugoslav Press by the Joint Translation Service at the U.S. and U.K embassies in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, published 1949-1972, has translations and abstracts in English of major Yugoslav communist-era newspapers. This publication was meant for distribution only among certain western embassies in Yugoslavia. Most content is from Borba and Politika, but there are also some articles or headlines from the Tanjug news agency and from other newspapers from the various former Yugoslav republics.
