The Day of Anti-Fascist Struggle, commemorated June 22, 1941, when the First Sisak Partisan Detachment was founded. That was the first armed anti-fascist unit not only in Croatia but also in that part of Europe. This event was the reason for organizing the exhibition of Tolerance posters.

The exhibition of 150 Tolerance posters was created in collaboration the Gradska galerija Striegl and was set up within the pedestrian zone of Sisak, on June 20, 2020 the eve of the Day of Anti-Fascist Struggle.
