Medal for Foreigners in Tito’s Partisan Forces

Flag_of_SFR_Yugoslavia.svgThis medal was awarded to the foreign fighters who fought as members of Tito’s Partisans for the liberation of Yugoslavia during the Second World War. It was issued shortly after the end of the war. The medal has an inscription on the back that reads “Smrt Fašizmu – Sloboda Narodu”, which translates as “Death to Fascism – Freedom to the People”. That was the slogan of the Yugoslav liberation fighters led by Marshal Tito.
