The fate of the Serbs was decided in 1928 in Dresden!


Eight decades have passed since a group of Yugoslav communists introduced hatred towards Serbs into the political life of that country and drew the borders of the states that would be born in the early nineties.

I spent decades, over thirty of them in journalism, purposefully read a mountain of books, documents, records, history textbooks, recollections of participants in important events, analysis of ideologically woven and liberated ideologies, talked to people, all in search of a solution to a mystery, but... it didn't worth it. I have never been able to find an answer to the question why communism, with all its manifestations on the territory of the former Yugoslavia, took the deepest roots among the Serbs, even though that ideology in the former state only brought enormous suffering, torment, expulsions, and loss of territory to the Serbs. That is, why many Serbs still respect the communist leaders who did more harm to them than Hitler's divisions. Am I exaggerating? Sadly no. Anyone who wants to can find out, it's just a matter of effort and time.

Genocide against Serbs

Several times until now, I have pointed to a date and event from the history of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ) that has been very modestly, persistently and meticulously hidden from the Serbian public for decades. Yes, it is the Fourth Congress of the CPJ held in 1928 in Dresden. The importance of that meeting, the discussion at it, the program documents that were adopted, are the basis of all subsequent anti-Serb acts in the territory of Yugoslavia, including - I have no problem saying this - the genocide that the Ustasha in the NDH carried out against the Serbs. The claim is strong, but the evidence is even stronger.

What happened in Dresden, from November 3 to 15, 1928, at the Fourth Congress of the CPJ? Who was there? Did that gathering of Yugoslav communists really inflate the sails of the Ustasha movement, encourage any anti-Serb action in the future, lay the foundations of future independent states, and to the detriment of the Serbs, create the embryos of future nations that will arise from Serbian existence and live on pathological hatred towards Serbs? Every answer to these questions is yes.

So, at the beginning of the Congress in Dresden, in the analysis of the political situation in the Kingdom of SHS, it was stated that with the creation of that state of the South Slavs, Slovenes, Croats, Montenegrins, as well as significant Albanian, Bulgarian and Hungarian areas were placed under the rule of the Greater Serbian bourgeoisie. This statement and what follows is extracted from KPJ documents, and does not represent the slightest secret. I do not use quotation marks because all these claims are copied verbatim and are undoubtedly authentic.

The KPJ labeled the Serbian bourgeoisie and the army of the Monarchy as its main enemy, underlining that the struggle must be transferred to Serbia itself, as the base of the hegemonic regime, and that this struggle must begin with the recognition of secession by the ethnic communities who want it and with an armed uprising, i.e. inciting an armed rebellion in the country, by its dissolution and the creation of new states on the ruins of the Kingdom of SHS. This is stated very precisely in the Congress document, called "Resolution on Economic and Political Position", where it is stated that the KPJ will fight for the establishment of independent Croatia, independent Montenegro, Macedonia and independent Slovenia, while it will give the Hungarian minority in Vojvodina the right to secede. . Special attention was paid to the "Albanian question", which the delegates of the KPJ Fourth Congress said was essential. It is noted that after the First World War, one third of the entire Albanian population fell under the rule of the oppressive regime of the Greater Serbian bourgeoisie, and it is emphasized that the liberation of that people from the Serbian occupation is possible only through a general uprising.

"Greater Albania"

In this sense, in 1928, the South Communists called on the "Kosovo Committee" to rise up against the Serbian occupation, as well as the working class in that area of ​​the Balkans to support and help the uprising in order to unite the oppressed and dismembered Albanian people and create their own independent and united Albania. . I draw attention to this "united", since it is a call to create a "great Albania", what we have today; Albania, Kosovo and western Macedonia, an area inhabited exclusively by Shiptars, on which there are only formal borders. In practice, it is a single territory and all that remains is its declaration as a single state, with part of Montenegro in it, which was also announced by Adem Demaći these days.

And now we come to the "Action Program", the most important document of the Fourth Congress of the KPJ, which still causes chills eight decades after that fateful event for Yugoslavia and the Serbs. It emphasizes that in those days only the KPJ helped the struggle of the oppressed peoples for freedom from the Great Serbian occupation, but that this would not hinder or demoralize the Yugoslav communists. In the aforementioned document, the Communists openly call on all national-revolutionary organizations in Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Kosovo and VMRO in Macedonia to "expel Serbian occupiers, Serbian troops, officials and gendarmes, as well as Serbian Chetniks from Croatia, Slovenia, Dalmatia, Vojvodina , Bosnia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo". At the end of the document, the communists call on all oppressed peoples, non-Serbs, to refuse military service outside their homeland.

It's amazing how much this all reminds of 1991. Tuđman, Kučan and Alija acted literally according to the instructions from Dresden.

The Fourth Congress elected a new Central Committee and Politburo which included: Filip Filipović, Milan Gorkić, Gojko Vuković, Đuro Đaković, Jakov Žorga, Jovan Mališić, Đuro Salaj, Božo Vidas, Marko Mašanović, Laza Stefanović and Petar Radovanović. Jovan Mališić was elected as the political secretary, and Đuro Đaković as the organizational secretary. Congress, this is additionally interesting, condemned the actions of the "right faction" of the KPJ, led by Simo Marković. What it is. Marković was one of the most educated communists of that time in Europe. He received his doctorate on June 26, 1913, with the dissertation "General Rakati equation of the first order", before the Board consisting of Milutin Milanković and Mihajlo Petrović Alas. Marković was a personal friend of Lenin, a member of the Executive Committee of the Comintern, but he disagreed neither with the Comintern nor with his party comrades regarding the issue of the future of Yugoslavia. He defended the position that Yugoslavia should not be broken up, that the creation of national states can be disastrous and tragic. Only a few months after the end of the Fourth Congress, the KPJ leadership excluded Marković from their ranks.
Let's go back and clarify the part where I mention the communist wind and Ustasha sails. It sounds unreal, but only for the uninitiated. As we have seen, both the communists and the Ustasha had the same goals at the beginning of the anti-Serb campaign. And their ways of fighting were the same. Stronger evidence for that claim should not be sought outside of the event that historians define as the "Velebit Uprising".

Anti-fascist uprising

It happened in 1932, just four years after the KPJ Congress and the appeal to all non-Serb peoples, their revolutionary and terrorist organizations, to rise up against the Serbian occupation. Towards the end of the summer, in 1932, the "Croatian revolutionary organization", known as the Ustaše, led by Anto Pavelić, made the decision to attack the institutions of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in Lika with weapons, and thus begin the struggle for the liberation of the Croatian people from the Serbian occupation. Just as the South Communists in Dresden said and recommended. Under the cover of night, between the sixth and seventh of September, Ustasha led by Andrija Artuković attacked the gendarmerie station in the village of Brušani, near Gospić. The conflict lasted less than an hour, the gendarmes readily responded to the attack and forced the people of Pavelić to retreat towards Velebit. Ustasha Stjepan Devčić was killed in the shooting, and a gendarme was slightly wounded.

On this occasion, the KPJ announced itself through its newspaper "Proleter", which, in issue 28, published an article entitled "Ustaški movement in Croatian regions" in which, among other things, it was written: "The Communist Party welcomes the Ustaški movement of Lika and Dalmatian peasants, and puts himself completely on their side. It is the duty of all communist organizations and every communist to help, organize and lead this movement".

The latter, "leaders", was not realized with the Ustasha, but was fully implemented in 1941, in the anti-fascist uprising of the Serbs in Croatia, when the communists, the Croats, came to territories with a Serbian majority, presented themselves as opponents of the Ustasha, Serbian comrades, took positions of so-called political commissars, they channeled that Serbian uprising against fascism in the desired direction and in the end attributed it exclusively to themselves. Today in Croatia, in the story of anti-fascism, no one mentions the Serbs.

You don't need more than five minutes to put the conclusions of the Fourth KPJ Congress on the table in front of you, what we have today in the territory of the former Yugoslavia and compare them. Everything is accomplished. Except for the separation of Vojvodina.
