|Abstract:||Confiscations of properties are one of the most important questions of Slovenian postwar history and are necessary if we want to understand the revolutionary changes after second world war. These confiscations help us with the question how private property became social property. Confiscations are one of the worst kinds of repression, which was implemented by the comunist authority, because people did not get any compsenation for thier properties.
Victims of confiscations, from both, nacist and communist goverments, were industrials, traders, craftmen and farmers. The nacists tried to destroy slovenian economy, while communists tried to destroy the private sector and make every property social. The majority of during the war and postwar confiscations were adressed to so called »national enemies«, people who were accused of having worked with the occupier and working against the national liberation movement.
After the war, courts of national honour started working in Jugoslavija and they were judging those who were working with the occupier. Their jurisdiction were criminal acts such as political, cultural, legal, economical or any other relationship with the occupier. They also judged making excuses for the occupier, working against NOB (national liberation movement). Penalties that were given by these courts were the loss of national honour, loss of the right to vote, forced labor, loss of freedom and partial or full confiscation of the property. If cases or criminal acts were bigger, such as avoiding mobilisation, working against the military authority, false personal information, they had to be handed over to military court.|
