    Collection: Jugoslavenski zbjeg u Egiptu | Yugoslav refugee camp in Egypt (Croatia, Egypt: 1944–1946)

    Description: The fond contains documentation of several departments of the Central Committee in El Shatt, Egypt, from World War II. The camp was home to refugees from Croatia, mostly women and children, so the fond contains information about them and the conditions of their stay in the camp. There are also documents on the work of the Anti-fascist Women’s Front organization, copies of their newspaper Žena zbjega (“Women Refugees”), and photographs of women in the refugee camp.
