OPISMENJAVANJE STANOVNIŠTVA BOSNE I HERCEGOVINE U PERIODU NARODNOOSLOBODILAČKOG RATA (1941-1945) // LITERARCY OF BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA'S POPULATION IN THE PERIOD OF PEOPLE'S LIBERATION WAR (1941-1945)
Journal Title:Historijski pogledi/Historical Views
The author of the paper presents the state of literacy of the population of Bosnia and Herzegovina until the Second World War, and in particular explains the activities that are conducted with regard to the literacy of the population in the period of the National Liberation War (NOR). Certainly, a special review was given to the presentation of the literacy process of the population, which is an outgrowth for regular primary school education, and on the activities that took place on the occasion of the NOR on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition, the literacy of children through attending elementary school, as well as literacy in Bosnia and Herzegovina under the fascist occupation and administration of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH), were partly given in order to review the framework state. Bosnia and Herzegovina had a very high percentage of the illiterate population before the Second World War. How fascist occupation, warfare, human and material losses have compounded this picture, and whether during the war, in the liberated areas, adequate methods of working for the literacy of the population were found, the author explains on the pages of this paper.
