ABSTRACT
The article draws attention to the issue of experiencing displacement and alienation of refugees from the Littoral and deportees during and after the Great War. Both refugees accounts and wartime press indicate that the relations between the Littoral refugees and the local population were difficult, particularly in Ljubljana and Carniola. An appeal for more help to refugees from the Goriška region, to mothers with small children in particular, was made by Slovene educated women who were active in Trieste and engaged in public support for refugees from the Littoral; following the rise of fascism, they became refugees themselves and experienced fi rst-hand the aversion of the environment to which they immigrated. Individual accounts suggest that the negative attitude towards Littoral refugees in the post-war period is a reflection of various cultural and political affiliations and practices.
