ŠTÁTOPRÁVNE KONCEPCIE O SLOVENSKU V KONTEXTE SLOVENSKÉHO NÁRODNÉHO POVSTANIA
Constitutional aspects of the Slovak National Uprising
Languages of publication
75 years ago, on 29 August 1944, the Slovak National Council and its military headquarters got out of illegality and declared the Slovak National Uprising – an armed fight against the German Fascist occupying forces and domestic traitors for freedom, democracy and renewal of the Czechoslovak Republic based on the new principles of equality and therefore equal position of the Slovak and Czech nation. The study contains an analysis and evaluation of the decisive documents and events, which had immediate effect on the constitutional aspects of the Slovak National Uprising as well as meaning in terms of political power, military and moral meaning. In addition to the above, the study points out to the origin of the Slovak national statehood, which started forming in the SNU already, continuing within the renewed Czechoslovak Republic, which was supposed to be gradually rebuilt into a federal state following the liberation by the Soviet Army. The study particularly highlights the military and international meaning of the SNU, which consisted in the fact that the Slovak nation, through its armed fight in the Uprising, was tying the Wehrmacht military forces, which the German Fascist were then missing on other European battlefields. Through its Uprising, Slovakia joined the global anti-Fascist coalition of countries as well as the states winning over the Fascist Germany in the World War 2.
