Josip Broz Tito
The arrest of the CPY leadership
Zagreb, Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes
After the arrest of the CPY leadership in January 1922, Stevo Sabić took over control of its operations. Sabić contacted Broz who agreed to work illegally for the party, distributing leaflets and agitating among factory workers. In the contest of ideas between those that wanted to pursue moderate policies and those that advocated violent revolution, Broz sided with the latter.
