Brandt, Miroslav. Review of the 10th Session of the CK SKH, which mentioned Matica hrvatska, 1970. Manuscript
This review was written after January of 1970, when the Central Committee of League of Croatian Communists attacked the unitarism of Miloš Žanko, who, in the Serbian newspaper Borba, characterized the entire activities of Matica Hrvatska as “chauvinistic nationalism.” Brandt dissociated himself from Žanko's objections, remarking as the vice-president of Matica Hrvatska that its members and organizations did not waver in their belief in “democratic and self-management socialism,” nor forsake the struggle for “the equality, brotherhood and unity of the Yugoslav people.” Brandt's generation wanted to exploit the reforming momentum of socialism from the end of the 1960s, to promote the Croatian national movement and the renaissance of national culture in the context of the one-party dictatorships and the ideological monopoly of Communist party.
