Letter from Mihajlo Mihajlov to Edvard Kocbek, 7 June 1966
In this letter, Mihajlo Mihajlov asks Edward Kocbek to join the initiative to establish the first free magazine that would not be under the surveillance of the Yugoslav Communist Party. Mihajlov was the head of the intellectual circle in Zadar as a young Russian literature professor who advocated the liberalization of the communist regime. Knowing that Kocbek was an exceptional intellectual authority and that he was in a certain opposition to the authorities, Mihajlov considered him a suitable person for the journal he intended to initiate, which was supposed to advocate pluralism and democracy.
