Liberalism and liberal parties were gradually losing their importance in Europe of the 20th Century. The political space they had occupied was being taken over by the newly emerging political movements, such as the labour parties and christian socialist movements, their political representatives and ideas, which was in itself a new challenge for the liberals. However, the struggle for and the presence of liberal ideas remained and was present thoroughout the 20th Century. These ideas were now more or less represented by individuals, who were active in political life and were often invited to occupy high official positions or positions in the civic sphere. They were the bearers of ideas in intelectual, cultural and economic circles, through which they promoted the ideas of humanism, fought for the basic democratic principles, individual and political, religious or other freedoms, etc. A similar process can be identified in Slovenia after the turn of the Century, especially after W.W.I. The individual role, ideas and the impact the liberals had in Slovenia is therefore of great importance in terms of further research, mainly because it was a turbulent time when many changes took place. It was the period of the forming and realization of the first Yugoslav state, followed by the challenges of the Second World War, and by the post war period of an orthodox socialist state, modelled by the Soviet one.
