The building was reconstructed during the postwar period, and even expanded, as the Central Committee of the Communist part of Yugoslavia found its way in house its Headquarters. As the Central Committee moved into the new building in 1965, the space was designated for research institutes, including ours. The building hosted a state of the art library, unique for the country. However, in the chaos of the 1990s, it was poorly maintained. Our associates did their best to save the most valuable segments of the library in the basement of the building, once the vaults of the bank, but much of the collections perished.
