O represiji nacističnega režima nad slovensko govorečimi prebivalci na avstrijskem Štajerskem (1938–1945)
ON THE REPRESSIVE ACTS OF THE NAZI REGIME AGAINST SLOVENIANES IN THE TERRITORY OF THE AUSTRIAN FEDERAL PROVINCE OF STYRIA, 1938–1945
The article focuses on the Nazi repression against the autochthonous Slovenian‐speaking po‐ pulation in the Austrian Styria living near the Yugoslav border as well as against Slovenian immigrants in Graz and in other parts of Austrian Styria. On one hand this repression is described as a complex of criminal activities building on the proven German national tradition of national struggles dating back to the time before World War I. On the other hand the Nazi repression involved a new dimension of negative intensity, leading directly to an extensive denationalisation policy in Slovenia after 6 April 1941. Besides people living near the border, in the territory of Austrian Styria this repression was also aimed against persons who had contacts with Yugoslavia, officials of the Slovenian society Čitalnica in Graz, and every person of Slovenian origin taking part in the political resistance or cooperating with partisans.
