War doch das GleicheZitat von CAR_DUAN
Gleichberechtigt waren nur die Serben.
Die anderen Völker waren der Wilkür ausgeliefert. Siehe unter anderem den offenen Brief von Einstein und Mann an die New York Times, die Petition an die Vereinten Nationen usw.
Einige BeispieleOder wirtschaftlichThe culmination of the Serbian police terror took place during the personal dictatorship of king Aleksandar Karadzordevic since 1929. One of the historical documents from that period, showing `methods' of the Serbian police and administration, is a bill on 13 dinars and 15 paras charged to a Croatian family in 1934 for five bullets fired at the father, who was sentenced to death. The families were persuaded even to pay the `expenses' of the execution within eight days, under the threat of confiscation of their property. Croatian archbishop Alojzije Stepinac reported about this event to the French diplomat Ernest Pezet in 1935.Oder auf Armee-EbeneBelgrade made use of the world economic crises in 1929 to destroy the Croatian banking system, which had been the strongest in Yugoslavia.Oder hiervon etwasOut of 165 active army generals of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1929 - 1941) only 2 were the Croats, and - 161 Serbs.Oder dieses vielleichtThe Serbian legislature, juridical and military 19th century law was simply implemented into the new state without changes and without consultations with the Croats. It resulted in unbearable terror and persecutions of Croatian peasants and intellectuals. Croatian teachers were retired and persecuted.Und so weiter und so fort.Equally difficult was the economic terror of the Belgrade government. The Croats were not proportionally represented in the government and diplomatic corps. The old currencies - Serbian dinars and Croatian (Austrian) crowns, which in 1918 had the same value, were in 1919 changed for the new dinar in the following ratio: 1 dinar = 4 crowns!
On the other hand,
taxes were lower in Serbia,
the major part of foreign loans was spent in Serbia,
high administrative posts were filled exclusively with the Serbs (civil servants in Croatia were appointed by the central administration in Belgrade).
Es lebe die Gleichberechtigung serbischen Verständnisses.
Die in Kroatien in etwa so ausgesehen hatSelbstverständlich sind wir für ein Königreich Jugoslawien, aber malo morgen.All the best posts in Croatia were occupied by the Serbs. Around 1930 the situation in Croatia was to following (see Henri Pozzi, p.35):
at the Croatian ministry of the Interior 113 out of 125 officials were Serbs,
at the Foreign office 180 out of 219,
at the Presidency of the council 13 out of 13,
at the Ministry of Justice 113 out of 136,
at the Securities Bank 196 out of 200,
at the Court 30 out of 31.
Croatia had to keep about sixty thousand Serb gendarms, police and soldiers.
Unterdrücken dürft ihr euch in Zukunft selbst, aber ohne Kroaten, Slovenen, Bosnier, Makedonen, auch wenn es diesen Völkern nicht so gut geht, immer noch wesentlich besser als im Königreich Jugoslawien :P
