March 18, 2009

Josip Broz Tito, original name Josip Broz ( 7 May 1892 – 4 May 1980) was the leader of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1945 until his death in 1980. During World War II, Tito organized the anti-fascist resistance movement known as the People’s Liberation Movement led by Yugoslav Partisans. Later he was a founding member of Cominform, but resisted Soviet influence  and became one of the main founders and promoters of the Non-Aligned Movement. He supported the creation of a Yugoslav nationality and identity as a Pan-Slavic replacement of the existing nationalities in Yugoslavia, and thus through his actions, was considered a Yugoslav.
