Abstract: 
The article focuses on the life-story of a Slovenian emigrant Stanka that serves as a basis to elucidate
the processes of illegal migrations from the western Yugoslavian outskirts towards Italy. The
personal perspective enables a more thorough and detailed insight into the massive outflow of
Slovenian population in the initial postwar years and intends to upgrade the politicized and ideologically
conditioned understanding of the phenomenon. In order to better understand the issue,
the text encompasses the time before and after the act of Stanka’s flight itself, trying to illuminate
all the crucial events in her life that eventually led to or were conditioned by her emigration. Her
story is embedded in the family environment and is also contextualized with historical development.
Oral history interviews, informative conversations, analysis of various ego-documents and
biographical notes are therefore supported with relevant literature from the field of historical and
migration studies in order to reconstruct Stanka’s migratory experience.
