Death to fascism, freedom to the people
The slogan Death to fascism, freedom to the people! (Croatian: 'Smrt fašizmu, sloboda narodu!',Serbian: Смрт фашизму, слобода народу!, Slovene: Smrt fašizmu, svoboda narodu!, Macedonian: Смрт на фашизмот, слобода на народот! or Smrt na fašizmot, sloboda na narodot!! Albanian: Vdekje fashizmit, liri popullit!) was a Yugoslav Partisan and Albanian Partisan motto, afterward accepted as the official slogan of the entire resistance movement, that was often quoted in post-war Yugoslavia. It was also used as a greeting formulation among the movement members both in official and unofficial correspondence during the war and for a few subsequent years, often abbreviated as "SFSN!" when written and accompanied by the clenched fist salute when spoken (one person usually saying "Smrt fašizmu!", the other responding with "Sloboda narodu!").
The slogan became popular after the death of Croatian Partisan Stjepan Filipović. As the rope was put around his neck on 22 May 1942, Filipović defiantly thrust his hands out and denounced the Germans and their Axis allies as murderers, shouting "Death to fascism, freedom to the people!". At this moment, a subsequently-famous photograph was taken from which a statue was cast.
