A rare mimeographed illustrated book was printed by an underground printing press in Slovenia, and includes songs, most of which are classic partisan songs, which survived until today. The book also includes some translations of Russian songs, as well as translations of the British and Soviet Anthems, and The Star-Spangled Banner.
The song book was printed in 1944, when the Yugoslavian partisan cooperated with the Allies and were awaiting a liberation by the Americans, English and Soviets in the following months.
In 1964 only one copy was recorded in Yugoslavian institutions. Today we could not trace any examples in in institutions worldwide.
