State repressive system on the territory of Croatia from 1918 to 1941

By Hrvoje Čapo

Abstract

Kraljevina Srba, Hrvata i Slovenaca/Jugoslavija je tijekom cijeloga svog postojanja po svojem državnom centralističkom uređenju pripadala krugu nedemokratskih i autoritarnih država. Kao posljedica toga, državni represivni aparat imao je puno izraženiju ulogu u državnom životu Kraljevine. Ta je uloga prelazila granice uobičajenih zadaća represivnoga aparata pa su političko djelovanje i s tim povezana represija bili osnova rada jugoslavenskoga represivnog aparata između dvaju svjetskih ratova. Vladajući režim je oštru represivnu politiku provodio nad svim neistomišljenicima. Na iznimno žestokom udaru takvoga represivnog aparata se nalazilo i hrvatsko stanovništvo pod vodstvom glavne anticentralističke političke snage Hrvatske (republikanske) seljačke stranke. Znanstvenom analizom teoretskih osnova prikazan je karakter političkoga uređenja Kraljevine SHS/Jugoslavije. Na dostupnom arhivskom gradivu rekonstruiran je način rada represivnoga aparata Kraljevine SHS/Jugoslavije. Determinirani su ključni načini i razlozi djelovanja državne represije, od nalogodavaca do izvršitelja.Throughout its existence The Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes/Yugoslavia according to its centralized system of government belonged to the group of nondemocratic, autocratic states. As a result, the state repressive apparatus had a more prominent role in the political life of the Kingdom. Its role went beyond the boundaries of custom tasks performed by the repressive apparatus. Therefore, political activities and related repression created the basis for the operations of Yugoslav repressive apparatus between the two world wars. The ruling regime pursued a firm repressive policy against its opponents. Croatian population, led by the main anti-centralist political force the Croatian (Republican) Peasant Party, was extremely oppressed by such an apparatus.Scientific contribution: by means of scientific analysis of theoretical basis showed the character of political organization of the Kingdom of SCS / Yugoslavia. From the available archival materials reconstructed the working methods of the repressive apparatus of the Kingdom of SCS/Yugoslavia. Determined the key operational methods and reasons of the repressive apparatus, from commanders to subordinates
