On 26 April 1941 in Ljubljanamarker the Anti-Imperialist Front was established. It was to promote "an international massive movement" to "liberate the Slovenian nation" whose "hope and example was the Soviet Union". The fact is that, regarding the Soviet Union, that at that time the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact was still tying it to the Nazi Germany. Its founding groups were the Communist Party of Slovenia, some Christian Socialists, and a dissident group of Slovene Sokols (also known as "National Democrats"), and a group of intellectuals around the journals Sodobnost and Ljubljanski zvon, including Josip Vidmar and Ferdo Kozak.

After the attack of Germany on the Soviet Union the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Slovenia changed the Anti-Imperialist Front to the Liberation Front of Slovenia. However, in order to hide the true intent of the organization (“to reveal the treacherous Slovenian bourgeoisie … also the one that took refuge with the English imperialists”, , ), the date of the establishment of the “Liberation Front” was changed to April 27, 1941. This historical lie only became known to general public after Slovenia gained independence in 1991.

In February 1943, the founding groups signed the so-called Dolomite statement: all other groups recognized the Communist Party as the leading force, and renounced independent political action. The Communist Party, which had been the major force in the Anti-Imperialist Front/Liberation Front since its formation, was thus officially recognized as the leading faction, as well as the only group within the Front that kept the right to have a distinct and independent organizational structure.

After the war, the Liberation Front was transformed into the Socialist Alliance of the Working People of Slovenia.
