BETWEEN TWO FIRES; ANTI-JEWISH POGROMS IN WESTERN SLOVAKIA AT THE END OF 1918
Based on documents of the Club of Slovak MPs within the Revolutionary National Assembly in Prague, the article gives information on events in western Slovakia (Holic, Senica, Nove Mesto nad Vahom, Chynorany and other locations) in November - December 1918. At that time, Jewish homes and shops were pillaged and the Jews were assaulted as a result of disintegration of the Hungarian state administration, subsequent chaos and lack of authorities and peace forces on this territory. Not only demoralised soldiers returning from war fronts, but also the local population took part in the pogroms. This turmoil, which often resulted in crime, was caused by efforts to get rich and procure food, and by anti-Semitist sentiments spurred by suspicion that the Jews favoured the Hungarians and the old regime.
