Josip Broz Tito; 7 or 25 May 1892 – 4 May 1980 was a Yugoslav revolutionary and statesman. He was Secretary-General (later President) of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia (1939–80), and went on to lead the World War II Yugoslav resistance movement, the Yugoslav Partisans (1941–45). After the war, he was the authoritarian Prime Minister (1943–63) and later President (1953–80) of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY).
Vladimir Nazor (born May 30, 1876 in Postira, Brač – died June 19, 1949 in Zagreb) was the first head of state of the modern Croatia. A member of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia, he led the Croatian World War II wartime assembly, the ZAVNOH, and later served as President of the President of the Presidium of the People's Assembly of the People's Republic of Croatia (head of state). Today he is most remembered, however, as a well-known Croatian poet, writer, translator, and humanist.
Ante Ciliga (20 February 1898 - 21 October 1992) was Croatian communist, one of the founders of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ). He was born in Istria in what was then the Austrian Littoral. Ciliga became a member of its Central Committee and Politbureau, as well as chief editor of Borba and Regional Secretary for Croatia. After moving to Vienna in 1925 as the local representative of the KPJ, he settled in the Soviet Union, where he lived from October 1926 to December 1935.
Svetozar Delić was the first communist mayor of Zagreb, Croatia. Although he is known for his work in the early Yugoslav communist organization "Napred," Delić is mostly recognized for being the mayor with the shortest term in the history of Zagreb. His term lasted only three days before Delić was fired and another three days before he was expelled from city hall.
