A pamphlet in Croatian language, printed during WWII in an underground press, includes a text, originally published in 1924, by a popular assassinated Croatian politician Stjepan Radić. 

Stjepan Radić (1871 − 1928) was a Croatian politician and an early socialist, who was publishing political illegal and pro-Slavic articles in Prague already in the 19th century. In 1904, Radić founded the Croatian People’s Peasant Party. He was assassinated in the parliament in 1928, by a Serbian politician Puniša Račić, what caused further alienation of the Croats and the Serbs. 

During WWII Radić’s texts with a pan-Slavic and pro-Russian note were popular among the Partisan movement. The tensions between the Croats and Serbian Chetniks were additionally sparkled by Serbs protecting Radić’s assassin Puniša Račić since 1928, when he was sentenced to house arrest in a comfortable villa. Račić was killed by the Yugoslav Partisans on 16 October 1944 during the liberation of Belgrade.
