From 1945 to 1980 the former communist partisan leader Josip Broz, who called himself Tito, was the strong man of the People’s Republic of Yugoslavia. Not only did he unite the multi-ethnic state, but he also took his own path for his country: in 1948, Tito dared to break with Stalin. His socialist model of “Titoism” was also authoritarian and brought about sharp repression for his opponents.
