This article will focus on population shifts, persecution and forced displacements in Slovenia between 1941 and 1943. It will therefore consider the period of Italian occupation and what these phenomena meant in the larger context of Italian occupation policies and the interactions with its allies in former Yugoslavia. By doing so, the article will add to our understanding of the war scenario in Slovenia and Yugoslavia and to our knowledge of relations between the «Axis» powers, as well as the interconnectedness of different policies during the war. This is a good example for the situation created in Yugoslavia during World War II, as it portrays on the one hand, policies implemented by Italy and Germany to achieve their respective goals of Italianization and Germanization of their occupation zones, and, on the other hand, what repercussions those policies had on a much wider territory, including Croatia and Serbia.
