Abstract

Focusing on the death of Josip Broz Tito, his spectacular funeral, the destiny of his mausoleum (a memorial that was built for him while he was actually still alive), and his hero cult, I study the change in the attitude toward him that occurred with the national awakening that took place throughout Yugoslavia several years after his death, although I limit this case study to Serbia.

***

Prispevek se osredotoča na smrti Josipa Broza Tita, njegov veličasten pogreb, usodo njegovega mavzoleja (spomenika, ki so mu ga postavili, ko je bil že živ) in kult heroja, ki so ga vzpostavili ob njem. Avtorica analizira spremembe, ki so se zgodile med različnimi nacionalnimi prebujenji na območju Jugoslavije nekaj let po Titovi smrti, pri čemer se najbolj posveti dogodkom v Srbiji.
