Slovak National Uprising History
Slovak National Uprising commemorates the Slovak resistance to Nazi Germany. During World War II, as the Soviet Army began to overpower the German forces, a resistance group in Slovakia came together in an effort to overthrow the government. When the Germans caught wind of the uprising, they deployed their troops to Slovakia. On 29 August, the resistance movement rose up against the German Nazi regime and fought for many months to be rid of German rule.
Slovak National Uprising is celebrated annually on 29 August in memory of those who fought for Slovakia's liberation. It also serves as a remembrance day for all of the Slovak Jews who were murdered under Nazi control. It is Slovakia's National Day.
