After a long delay, here at last is the new episode! Today, we discuss the early foreign policy of the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, and the internal measures taken to make unification a reality.
Today I talk to Dr John Paul Newman of Maynooth University about his book, Yugoslavia in the Shadow of War, and the divisions within interwar Yugoslav society that resulted from the various difference experiences of the First World War and what it meant.
The First World War in Austria-Hungary began with a massive political crackdown on dissidents. But a few of those dissidents managed to escape, and from exile, they plotted their dream of a united Yugoslavia.
Hey all. Realise I’ve been gone a while, and I thought I’d share with you my experiences on the Marš Mira (Peace March) and the Srebrenica Genocide commemorations.
Please be aware before listening that much of the subject matter discussed in this episode is by its nature more dark and harrowing than most regular episodes.
Some pictures from the March can be found here.
Hey all. Here’s a selection of photos from my travels in Bosnia. Most are from the Peace March and the Memorial Centre at Potočari.
