  1. Hey, the ‘old man’ stared at me from a copy of that sketch throughout the years of elementary school 🙂

    Reminds me of how we used to begin our classes underneath that work of art every day. One of us (dežurni) would get up in front of the class at 8 am and say “Death to Fascism” to which the entire class would reply “Freedom to the Nation”.

    Not much unlike a prayer, I’m sure alcessa would agree!

  2. Hm… I don’t know which school you went to, but in our school we used to say: “Za domovino s Titom, naprej!” (For the country, forward with Tito)

  3. I wish we could have yelled out ‘Death to Fascim!’ at the start of each school day when I was in high school. For more than one reason… :mrgreen:

  4. Mi smo Titovi, Tito je nas. For some reason, 2nd thing I was taught in Slov class, and one of the few I remember.

    Never got to know what heppened with poor Luks in the end, though 🙁

  5. W November the 29!
    Tito had to have a Nobel for Peace. But because, “american hobby, and isarel lobby” were the reason why not!
