Folders with documents


At first glance two very ordinary folders, have an exceptional place in Slovenian history. They contain a variety of materials, including maps, statistics, etc. With this material, translated into English, Russian and French; the Yugoslav delegation argued its territorial demands to other delegations at the Paris Peace Conference (July 27 – October 15, 1946).

The outcome of the negotiations were the peace treaties, signed on 10 February 1947 by the Allies and Axis countries of the Second World War (without Germany and Japan). 15 September 1947 was especially important for Slovenia, when the Paris Peace Treaty with Italy was established, which granted Yugoslavia a large part of Primorska region.

You will learn more about this at our upcoming temporary exhibition in September.
