Conceptual content of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Uprising
Languages of publication
The study analyses the conceptual content of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the 1944 Uprising in Slovakia, an event that the Czechoslovak communists appropriated and used as one of the ways of legitimizing their power. The celebrations of the Uprising in 1964 retained their socialist – revolutionary character, reshaped into the allegedly “constructive” message of the Uprising. However, thanks to the rehabilitation of the victims of the trials of “bourgeois nationalists”, the national aspect of the events was beginning to shine through. It is possible to say that at the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the Uprising in 1964, the socialist – revolutionary and national elements merged, which only confirms the reality that the communists connected with older cultural traditions and could not suppress modern national consciousness in a more cultured state.
