From 1945 up until 1960, Roman Catholic nuns in Croatia and Bosnia-Hercegovina were trying to keep their orders alive and find new roles within the Church and society. This study draws on archival documents, including verdicts, appeals, and resolutions found in the files of the Commission for Religious Affairs for the years 1945 to 1952, and personal interviews to provide a comprehensive portrait of the situation of Roman Catholic nuns during post-World War II communist Yugoslavia.
