ZBOR


ZBOR

Jugoslovenski narodni pokret "Zbor" ("Yugoslav National Movement "Zbor", commonly known as "ZBOR") was the name of the movement formed in 1935 by Dimitrije Ljotić through the merger of a number of right-wing nationalist parties.

ZBOR copied comparable movements in Italy and Germany at that time, and it was created as a reaction to the Great Depression which had greatly affected the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. The party was not successful at the ballot box. As their counterparts in the West, ZBOR organised their own paramilitary wing, known under the name "Ljotićevci". The main targets of the ZBOR were communists (the Communist Party of Yugoslavia).

ZBOR party tried to create an alliance with the Nazi Germany before the start of World War II. It had received funding from the state from at least 1937 and onwards.Cohen, Philip J. "Serbia's secret war: propaganda and the deceit of history", Texas A&M University Press, 1996] It was eventually banned in Yugoslavia during the Cvetković government in 1940. This ban was short-lived. After the defeat of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1941, the party placed itself in complete service to the German occupation forces, and soon created its own military arm Serbian Volunteer Corps ("Srpski dobrovoljački korpus"), which was the kernel of the Serbian military force in Nedić's Serbia.
