With the fall of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1941. and short-termed Independent State of Croatia at the end of the World War II, came a new socialistic government led by Josip Broz Tito that would reign for the next 48 years. In the first couple of years, after the World War II, Yugoslavia was firmly connected with the Soviet Union, a country that took a substantial part in liberating the east of Europe from the Axis Powers including Belgrade. But, as influential as it was on this parts of Europe, The Red Army wasn't the main reason why Yugoslavia's territory was liberated. The credit for that goes directly to Tito's partisans and that is the main reason why Tito's Yugoslavia could choose its own way into socialism apart from the soviet influence that would cause a split between the two countries later in the 1940's. There are many ways to observe the relationship between the Soviet Union and Tito's Yugoslavia during the 1945-1956. period and one of them is the theme of this thesis – croatian history school books and curriculums. History books that were used date from the 1955. until 1983. and curriculums from 1946. until 1988. These sources show how and to what extend USSR was portrayed and presented to the students including key moments that marked the relations between the two countries; Red Army influence, the split in the 1948., view on the Cold War, etc. The research in this thesis could be split in two time periods that show the contrast in portraying USSR and its actions; 1945-1948. and 1948-1956. The first one shows firm connections and friendly attitude toward the Soviet Union emphasising the union between the two countries. The latter period is interesting because, after the split in 1948., portrayal of the Soviet Union calmed in its glorification and took the opposite route, hyper critical one with the hints of anti-soviet propaganda (especially regarding the 1948. split). Also, in the school - books and curriculums after the 1956. and the re-establishment of the Yugoslav-Soviet relations, the portrayal of the Soviets became more objective showing that Yugoslavia earned its place in the world apart from the USSR and is not afraid to have an objective standpoint regarding the Soviet actions in the world.
