Etnološka tribina : Journal of Croatian Ethnological Society, Vol.11-12 No.4-5 December 1983. -

In his contribution the author attempts to establish the degree to which war conditions change certain ethnographic traits and create new ones, or new uses and forms of traditional cultural forms. Since World War One continued with Italian occupation of Istria until 1945, it could be asserted that the whole period was an attack on the national rights of the Slavic population of Istria by blocking or destroying its ethnographic properties. It is interesting that rural women were the most significant subjects of revolt against ethnic oppression. They invented numerous ways to counteract the enemy, particularly in the course of struggle to secure basic food supplies in those difficult times. Some of them completely neglected agriculture and entered new, urban-based occupations. A more intensive study of this subject, which may at first glance appear non-ethnological, could bring some interesting ethnological results.
