About 100th Ann of the Birth of the First President of the Republic of Croatia, Dr. Franjo Tudman

Tuđman, Franjo – general, historian, politician (Veliko Trgovišće, 14 May 1922 Zagreb, 10 December 1999). From 1942, he was a member of the partisan movement and did active military service in Belgrade from 1945 to 1961, during which he rose to the rank of major general in the Yugoslav People's Army. From 1961 to 1967 he worked as the director of the Institute for the History of the Workers’ Movement, where he addressed several thorny issues from the modern past, including the exaggerated numbers of victims at Jasenovac. This led him into conflict with the regime, to his early retirement and expulsion from the Communist Party of Croatia. As a result of his political activities, he was sentenced to nine months in prison in 1971 and again to three years in (not fully served due to illness) in 1981 because of several statements he made to foreign media.
