Pałys, Piotr: The Representatives of the Sorbian National Movement (1946–1947) Seen From a Yugoslav Point of View


Lětopis Abstract 2016 1: Pałys, Piotr: The Representatives of the Sorbian National Movement (1946–1947) Seen From a Yugoslav Point of View

The Yugoslav Military Mission to the Allied Control Commission in Germany made contact with the Sorbs at the beginning of 1946 and supported Sorbian concerns as far as was possible. In addition, the Military Mission provided the Yugoslav Ministry of Foreign Affairs with information about the Sorbs and the situation in Lusatia. They gave detailed descriptions of the activities of the representatives of the Sorbian national movement, which was fundamentally split into two factions. Their analysis of the Sorbian national movement was strongly influenced by their ideological viewpoint. As a result, the representatives of the Domowina were assigned to the “progressive” wing, as they worked closely together with the German Communists and the Soviet occupying power. The members of the Sorbian National Committee were, by contrast, regarded as “reactionary.” Nevertheless, Yugoslavia was the only state, which actively supported the separatist aspirations of the Sorbs, which were pursued in equal measure by both the Domowina and the National Committee. As a consequence, senior political functionaries from Yugoslavia invited representatives of the Domowina and the National Committee to discussions in Belgrade and Berlin on a number of occasions.
