Summary/Abstract: This paper examines the role of the youth in the industrialization of Socialist Yugoslavia during the first postwar decade. Special attention is paid to the Communist Party propaganda that embellished the reality of socialist factories and the forced mobilization of young men and women – the formation of work brigades. Both measures were supposed to secure the employment of much needed working force in the heavy industry. The study is based on archival sources kept in the Archive of Yugoslavia and the Archive of Serbia and selected periodicals.
