Product ID: 3503


This extensive 2-volume edition presents hitherto unknown documents from Czech and Slovak archives, relating to the history of Carpatho-Ukraine, an autonomous state within Czechoslovakia in 1938–39.

Volume 1 features introductory materials, including Oleksandr Pahiria’s detailed 200-page essay outlining the history of the emergence of Carpatho-Ukraine (out of the land of Subcarpathian Ruthenia in interwar Czechoslovakia) and its political situation up until Adolf Hitler entrusted Hungary (on 14 March 1939) with the occupation of the region of Transcarpathia. On 15 March 1939, before the Hungarians had overrun Transcarpathia, the Diet of Carpatho-Ukraine in a symbolic gesture declared independence, approved a constitution, and elected Avhustyn Voloshyn president. Subsequently the government of Carpatho-Ukraine and many activists fled abroad to escape Hungarian repressions.

Volume 2 (over 860 pages in length) contains hitherto unknown or little known government, military, and diplomatic documents relating to Carpatho-Ukraine and drawn from Czech and Slovak archives.
