The Question of the Annexation of the Slovene Provinces to the Third Reich
On the basis of new material the author discusses the question of the annexation of the occupied Slovene provinces (Lower Styria and Upper Carniola) to the Third Reich, establishing the reasons for the postponement of the annexation. The paper establishes that legal and technical reasons were decisive for the first two postponements and the national war of liberation for the third and final postponement.
