TORNA ALLA HOMEPAGE
The Slovak Republic was a semi-independent Axis client state of Nazi Germany which existed from 14 March 1939 to 4 April 1945.
On 13 March 1939, Hitler invited Monsignor Jozef Tiso to Berlin and urged him to proclaim Slovakia;s independence. Tiso refused to
make such a decision himself, after which he organized a meeting of the Slovak parliament which would approve Slovakia's
independence.
On 14 March 1939 the parliament declared Slovak independence and appointed Tiso as prime minister.
After the anti-Nazi Slovak national uprising in August 1944 the Germans occupied the country, but were gradually pushed out by the
Red Army. The Slovak Republic ceased to exist on 4 April 1945, when the Red Army captured Bratislava and occupied all of Slovakia.
