The article presents an unknown document found in the posthumous legacy of Miroslav Krleza, in which the writer presents the circumstances of the creation of the Croatian Declaration on language dated 1967. The publication of the Declaration and the repressions their signatories met constitute one of the most important elements of the contemporary Croatian linguistic and national tradition. This is due to the fact that the signatories of the Declaration were former founders of the independent Croatian State and the document itself constitutes a proof of an incessant struggle of Croats for their linguistic and national independence. In this context statements made by Krleza in the published document saying that the Declaration was reputed to be a provocation aimed at the pro-nationally oriented part of Croatian intelligentsia sound sensational. The authors of this provocation were supposed to be Marxist intellectuals gathered around the journal 'Praxis', acting with the knowledge and approval of the Croatian party authorities. Considering the extraordinary content of this document and its meaning for the newest history of the Croatian language, the author found it important to present it in extenso along with commentaries concerning the circumstances in which the document was created.
