Croatia Celebrates Anti-Fascism and Statehood

In the month of June there are two national holidays by which the Republic of Croatia commemorates important dates in its political history.

The Anti-Fascist Struggle Day is celebrated to remember the 22 June 1941, when the First Sisak Partisan Detachment was formed in the Brezovica wood near Sisak. Moreover, this Detachment was the first anti-fascist unit in this part of Europe. Celebrating this day, Croatia reminds of its historical anti-fascist commitment and its affiliation to the victorious Allies in World War II.

Fifty years later, on 25 June 1991, the Croatian Parliament adopted its historical decision on starting the process of separation from other former Yugoslav republics. This decision was preceded by a referendum held on 19 May 1991, where 94 percent of the citizens decided Croatia was not to remain in Yugoslavia but was to achieve independence. The 25th of June is therefore celebrated as the Croatian Statehood Day. (Internet Editorial Staff)
