Summary/Abstract: This article provides a brief overview of the creation and development of the state security service during the war, reviewing the system and scope of activity of the security service before its official formation as the Odjeljenja zaštite naroda (OZN – Department of National Defense) in May 1944, and follows its activities up to its restructuring in 1946. The article features the fond for OZN operations in Croatia stored in the Croatian State Archive, which numbers 49 archival boxes and 3 books. The fond has been inventoried and catalogued. A selection of the sources the fond contains for 1945 were presented to the conference to address its theme. Indeed, there is much interest in this period, and an examination of the sources can serve to advance scholarly research and personal or other needs.
