Between July 21 and July 28, 1948, Belgrade hosted the Fifth Congress of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia. It was held at the Military Guard House in Topčider and was attended by 2344 delegates and numerous national and international guests. The reason for the meeting was the USSR and Informbiro Resolution against the leaders of Yugoslavia and its Communist Party. In his political report on the activities of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito presented an overview of events in the 20-year period between the 1928 Dresden Congress (the Fourth Congress of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia) and the 1948 Fifth Congress. The session was broadcasted by radio. Public address equipment was installed in public places in order to inform citizens on the course of the session.
