Summary/Abstract: The area where there has been the present-day border between Serbia and Croatia was in history repeatedly „shared” between the various government and administrative entities. Therefore, the dispute of the Croatian and Serbian (Vojvodina) communists had its roots deep in the past and in the ethnic mixing up of the terrain. The dispute culminated in the Second World War, so that it represented an internal problem for the new state government. In the middle of 1945 the AVNOJ Commission (National Antifascist Liberation Council of Yugoslavia) was determined for the demarcation between Vojvodina and Croatia. Milovan Đilas was appointed president of the Commission, a member of the Politburo and party and state official. The Commission on demarcation submitted its report to the Politburo and the Presidency of the AVNOJ, and its temporary proposal of demarcation became permanent as the inter-republic firstly and later the international border between Serbia and Croatia. Direct responsibility of Milovan Đilas lies in the Commission’s proposal for demarcation, but not in its application and subsequent fate.
