Summary/Abstract: This work attempts to review certain events in Zagreb during the first weeks after the conclusion of the war in 1945, that is, to point out the role the Command of the city of Zagreb, as the temporary city administration put in place by the Yugoslavian army, had in the life of the city in the first days after the end of the war. No serious research has been undertaken about the activities of the new and temporary city government in postwar Zagreb, only a few journalistic works have been published thus far. Due to the insufficient literature and the sparse archival materials in the Zagreb City Archive and the Croatian State Archive, journalistic publications, and articles from the newspapers Narodni list and Vjesnik were utilizied to write the article. Even though they were the main sources of information, it must be mentioned that the newspapers of the day, despite the fact that they were propagandistic, enable a faithful reconstruction of the first days in postwar Zagreb. The activities of the Command of the City of Zagreb can be classified into three categories. The first and most wide-ranging was related to the adiministration of city affairs, the second was maintaining discipline within the Yugoslavian Army in the city, and third was the activity of its Military Court.
