The Jugoslovensko Republicansko Zdruzenje (JRZ), successor to the Slovensko Republicansko Zdruzenje (SRZ) was created in 1918 in Chicago, Illinois. The JRZ included Serbs and Croats in its membership. In the early years (1918-1922), the organization was dominated by Etbin Kristan and John and Frank Petric. After 1922, Charles Pogorelec, Frank Zaitz (Zajc) and Filip Godina played major roles in its policy formulation. The JRZ advocated the creation of a democratic, federated republic (Yugoslavia) composed of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes. Between World War I and World War II, the organization supported social-democratic opposition in Yugoslavia. During World War II and after, it supported the Partisan movement. As a result of the Yugoslav-Soviet split of 1948 and anti-communist sentiment in the United States at the same time, the JRZ ceased to function.
