THE PERIOD BEFORE THE SLOVAK NATIONAL UPRISING IN THE REPORTS OF THE CROATIAN MINISTER TO BRATISLAVA (Obdobie pred Slovenskym narodnym povstanim v spravach chorvatskeho vyslanca v Bratislave)
On 10th April 1941 the Independent Croat State (NDH) was proclaimed in Zagreb. Slovakia recognized NDH five days later. Croatia and Slovakia were interested in closer cooperation. However, NDH was too weak. The dreams about cooperation in political and economical field did not materialized and the contacts were limited mostly to the culture only. In December 1942 Blaz Lorkovic, the old member of Ustasa movement and brother of the Croatian Minister of Foreign Affaires, was apointed as Croatian minister to Bratislava. The published documents shows how Lorkovic saw the situation in Slovakia before the Slovak National Uprising.
