Murder and Fascism - Rise of the Ustaše | BETWEEN 2 WARS I 1934 Part 3 of 4 5

💬 Comments on the video

There is a lot going on in this episode. Extreme nationalism, fascism, authoritarianism, terrorism, and so on so forth. These things are controversial enough, but they're also taking place in one of history's biggest minefields: the Balkans. We've done absolutely everything we can to stick to the facts and stay objective. It's a tough one to research but we have used credible academic texts and know we've done a good job.

If you think we've got something wrong, then feel free to (politely!) point it out in the comments. But remember that just because you don't like how a particular group or person has acted, it doesn't mean that the facts are wrong. Also, try to refrain from drawing any parallels with the modern-day to support your agenda. The fact that Yugoslavia struggled with ethnic tension has nothing to do with present-day debates on immigration and multiculturalism. Let's stick to history, not myth.


STAY CIVIL AND POLITE we will delete any comments with personal insults, or attacks.
AVOID PARTISAN POLITICS AS FAR AS YOU CAN we reserve the right to cut off vitriolic debates.
HATE SPEECH IN ANY DIRECTION will lead to a ban.
RACISM, XENOPHOBIA, OR SLAMMING OF MINORITIES will lead to an immediate ban.

I really hope a simillar episode will be done for Romania and the rise of the Iron Guard, the royal dictatorship as well as the dictatorship of Antonescu

"The crowd is infuriated, the police can't hold them. It's an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Pandemonium has broken loose! The mob is out to beat the man, and they'll do it too!" Old timey commentators were so eloquent in the way they described a situation, you truly have to admire that.

These three videos you've made so far on Yugoslavia have been truly great. I've never before come across a video on the topic of interwar Yugoslavia (or generally on south slavic ethnic tensions) that I didn't feel missed something important, but with this one, I truly have nothing to complain about. You have managed to condense that extremely sensitive and complicated topic into (so far) three 15-20 minute videos with more ability, clarity, grace and nuance than I've seen anyone do before. Really, I'm very impressed. Thanks for making these videos, and for doing the great work you do on this channel.

"Radical Peasant Democracy" is not something you want to see a government to call itself, lol.

King Alexander appoints half the senate.
Also King Alexander: I am the Senate!

I always wonder why so many WW2 documentaries completely ignore this subject

Author — Sy Abelman


Long story short, Yugoslavia had been a failed state even before the second world war. King Alexander and Tito tried the impossible, to keep united some nations that really never wanted to be united.

Few important events were left out in the video. On the June 20th 1928, Serbian member of (Yugoslav) parliament, Puniša Račić (People's Radical Party) during parl. session, killed three Croat MPs of Croat's Peasant Party (among them, it's leader Stjepan Radić). This led to "6th of January" dictatorship of King Aleksandar. It lasted between 06.01.1929. and 03.09.1931. During that time, parliament was absolved, work of all political parties and unions were forbiden, hard censorship of the press was instituted. Constitution was suspended, and all legislative and executive power was held by the King. In 1929, the name of the state was changed from Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians to Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Country was divided to 9 "banovine".

19:32 "somehow he survives, he was taken in for interrogation. He dies later that evening." Hilarious.

Today would have been my grandfather’s 79th birthday( he died this summer) and he was born in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in 1940, I am very lucky to be alive considering the time and place he was in.

Why is it called isolationism when the US does it but neutrality when Switzerland does it?

This is THE BEST and most complete video and explanation in general on this very sensitive topic. Excellent job!
