She begins by introducing the legislation and the census method and then analyses the individual censuses and census headings. The final part of the article is devoted to a critical review of the collection and analysis of census data. It explores what the new digital data processing methods allow for and focuses on the importance of methodology.</p> Neja Blaj Hribar Copyright (c) 2022 Neja Blaj Hribar Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:18:17 +0100 Ivan Dečko and His Last Styrian Regional Assembly Period <p><em>Avtor v prispevku analizira deželnozborske nastope spodnještajerskega poslanca Ivana Dečka v njegovem zadnjem mandatu (1902-1907). Kljub temu, da slovenski strani (na deželno- in državnozborski ravni) ni uspelo zmagati v mestu (najbližje zmagi so bili leta 1901), so celjski Nemci z vse večjim strahom spremljali slovenski nacionalni prodor. A mestni očetje se nikakor niso želeli ukloniti slovenskim zahtevam po gimnaziji znotraj mestnega teritorija. Dečko je medtem očitno »pozabil« na sklep slovenske politike, češ da tozadevno ne bo pristala na nikakršen kompromis, in samovoljno ponudil za gradnjo slovenske gimnazije del svoje posesti za mestnim »obzidjem« v Gaberjih. Njegova poteza se je pri ideološki delitvi pokazala za več kot odličen pripomoček konservativcev za napad nanj, posredno pa na liberalno strujo v Celju, kar je ne nazadnje vodilo v definitivni konec spodnještajerskega slogaštva.</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Filip Čuček Copyright (c) 2022 Filip Čuček Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:18:35 +0100 Mittheilungen des Deutschen und Oesterreichischen Alpenvereins (1875-1938) <p>This contribution aims to present the Mittheilungen des Deutschen und Oesterreichischen Alpenvereins newspaper, published between 1875 and 1938. It was one of the publications of the Deutscher und oesterreichischer Alpenverein (German and Austrian Alpine Society). After the annexation of Austria to Germany, the society in question was renamed as the Deutscher Alpenverein (German Alpine Society), which marked the beginning of its end. The newspaper in question covered the entire German-speaking territory of today’s Europe, and the contribution pays special attention to the news related to the Slovenian territory during the relevant period.</p> Marija Mojca Peternel Copyright (c) 2022 Marija Mojca Peternel Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:19:08 +0100 Military Adventurism: Kingdom of Italy’s Attack Against The Kingdom of Greece in 1940 <p>The article draws attention to the phenomenon of military adventurism. The analysis reveals certain fatal mistakes committed by the Italian political leadership, leading to military and political-diplomatic adventure. The most crucial of these included the simultaneous engagement of the limited Italian military forces on several battlefields (France, Albania, North Africa and Greece); the Italian arrogance towards Germany, its key ally; Italy’s overestimation of its forces’ capabilities and its underestimation of the enemy; and Italy’s disregard for the season (autumn and the coming winter), terrain (the mountainous area of Epirus), and weather (rain, snow, and extremely low temperatures) at the time of its attack against Greece.</p> Marjan Malešič, Anton Žabkar Copyright (c) 2022 Marjan Malešič, Anton Žabkar Fri, 14 Oct 2022 15:05:22 +0200 I Was a Stolen Child, I Was a Forgotten Child <p>The following article focuses on two groups of people in Slovenia who were forcibly separated from their parents and had their childhood stolen from them by two different ideologies. The first group consists of the victims of the German occupiers, while the second one involves the post-war retaliation of the victorious side. The contribution at hand sheds light on the consequences of these acts of violence and the lives of the children affected by them after the separation from their parents while presenting their efforts to regulate their legal status. In this context, it reveals the individual stories/memories of stolen and forgotten children. Their legal status was finally regulated in the independent state of Slovenia.</p> Dunja Dobaja Copyright (c) 2022 Dunja Dobaja Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:19:48 +0100 Yugoslav Economic Historiography between the National and International Context after World War II <p><em>The article discusses the establishment of economic historiography in Yugoslavia after World War II in the context of institutional development, methodological tools and concepts, socio-political organisation, ideological assumptions, control over historiography, principles of scientific policy, and international cooperation.</em></p> Žarko Lazarević Copyright (c) 2022 Žarko Lazarević Wed, 02 Nov 2022 11:43:30 +0100 Ivan Tomas and the Smuggler for the Pope <p><em>During the pontificate of Pope Pius XII (1939 - 1958) the relations between the Holy See and the European communist countries were strained or severed. In such circumstances the trial of the Archbishop of Zagreb, Alojzije Stepinac, was held in the Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia (FPRY), ending in 1946 when he was sentenced to 16 years in prison. After serving a five-year prison sentence, Stepinac was given a choice to go to Rome or to serve the rest of the sentence under house arrest in his hometown of Krašić. After Stepinac was appointed cardinal in 1953, the FPRY severed diplomatic relations with the Holy See, and Stepinac lost the opportunity to go to Rome and take over the cardinal's insignia.</em></p> <p><em>At the time Croatian Catholic priest Ivan Tomas was working at Vatican Radio in Rome. The result of Tomas's effort and the help of an American tourist of Slovenian origin, Frances Yenko Chilcoat, was an interesting and unusual journey of Stepinac’s cardinal robe and its safe arrival to the territory of the FPRY in 1954. Yenko Chilcoat described her endeavour in a memoir entitled Smuggler for the Pope, published in 2006.</em></p> <p><em>This paper will first explain the international political context of the time of her arrival from the United States of America to Europe and the church-state relations between the Holy See and the FPRY after World War II. Furthermore, the paper will verify the authenticity of Yenko Chilcoat's memoir and the credibility of her claims, analyse Tomas's role in the transfer of the cardinal robe, as well as the consequences of the cardinal robe coming into Stepinac's possession. Finally, a conclusion will be made about the meaning and the importance of Stepinac's cardinal robe transfer from Rome to the FPRY in the context of the contemporary church-state relations.</em></p> Domagoj Tomas Copyright (c) 2022 Domagoj Tomas Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:21:03 +0100 Konferenca Jezikovne tehnologije in digitalna humanistika 2022 Ana Cvek Copyright (c) 2022 Ana Cvek Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:21:40 +0100 Žarko Lazarević, Delo in zemlja.
