The Croatian Heritage Foundation’s data on emigrants

    The Croatian Heritage Foundation was founded in 1951 as a cultural, educational, and humanitarian social organization to establish, develop, and deepen ties with Croatian emigrants worldwide and members of the Croatian minority in European countries. It primarily developed strong cultural cooperation with emigrants and emigration societies and cooperated with other organizations in the country and abroad that dealt with emigrant issues. In the archival section entitled « History of Emigration », one can find numerous data on emigrants from Croatia worldwide. Noteworthy, Ivo Baučić’s study « Emigrants from Yugoslavia in Argentina and Peru » contains various statistics, including data on migrant women. In the second part of the archival material entitled « Yugoslav Temporary Workers Abroad », one can find analyses of people who fled abroad and their employment from 1965. There is also summary data on employment abroad in the 1960s, including data on women (number, qualifications, countries, employment, places they settled).
