Civilný život na povstaleckom území v čase SNP

Civilian Life in the Insurgent Territory during the Slovak National Uprising

The Slovak National Uprising was one of the most important events in the 20th-century history of Slovakia. Although historians have seriously examined this topic, they have predominantly concentrated on its political and military aspects. Much less attention has been paid to the everyday life of common people living in the territory taken by the insurgents. The author has produced this paper with an ambition to bring more detailed pieces of information about everyday life during the Slovak National Uprising. Hence it deals with economic and social problems that had to be solved by the common people in their day-to-day existence. Attention is also paid to cultural life – theatre performances, concerts and films – and to education, for example, courses of the Russian language. Furthermore, this paper has been written with an intention to examine the Slovak National Uprising from a new angle.
