This book draws attention to the manifestation of the totalitarian regime in Slovakia during World War II in its influences on the Nitra region, known for its dominant historical, economic and cultural center, the city of Nitra. The authors capture the reflection of regulations issued by the central government on the lower level of state administration and show to what extent particular decisions intervened in and influenced the lives of ordinary citizens on a regional level. The changes were obvious in the political, economic, social and cultural life. The book, based on detailed archival research, is a collection of human fates and tragedies caused by the events engendered within the framework of «great politics».
