Antisemitic Propaganda during the Second World War. The Case of the Slovak State and the Independent State of Croatia


LoncikovaMichala Lônčíková’s dissertation focuses on antisemitic propaganda in two former Nazi satellites, the Slovak State and the Independent State of Croatia.


The two selected countries provide an ideal comparative model for analysing the representation of Jews as an enemy of national regime. During the interwar period, both Slovaks and Croats struggled for autonomy within a multinational state and later created a national state under the umbrella of Nazi Germany. Both political regimes eliminated their potential political and ideological opposition, took control over the mass media, and established a totalitarian political system. Finally, their ruling regimes rested upon similar ideological pillars: Christianity and nationalism. This project contextualises the relationship of antisemitism to political power in the Slovak and Croat Nazi satellite states through an analysis of textual and visual media campaigns, taking into account the diverse perceptions of Jewish communities among the majority societies.


Michala Lônčíková, holds MA degree in History from the Comenius University in Bratislava and since 2012 she has been a PhD. Candidate at the Department of General History at the Faculty of Arts there. She participated in the international comparative project on Post-WWII Antisemitic Pogroms in East and East Central Europe: Collective Violence and Popular Culture, funded by the Gerda Henkel Stiftung. Currently she is a historian at the Holocaust Documentation Center in Bratislava and as such she is also a contributor to the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) project.


Michala Lônčíková will be working at the institute as a recipient of the Ernst Mach-Grant of the Aktion Österreich-Slowakei.
