33 Days

There is a new temporary exhibition 33 Days on display in the gallery of the Museum of Recent History Celje from October 2019.
The exhibition, which shows the turning point after the Habsburg Monarchy disintegrated and collapsed and the short period (only 33 days!) of the existence of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs, until its unification into the Kingdom of SHS, was prepared by the National Museum of Slovenia in cooperation with the Museum of Contemporary History of Slovenia and the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia.
Temporary exhibition represents the material and spiritual heritage of the first modern Slovenian state entity.
At the beginning of October 1918, the National Council of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs was founded in Zagreb, headed by Anton Korošec. On 29 October, the Croatian Parliament and people’s gathering in Ljubljana announced the establishment of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs with a capital in Zagreb. At the end of October, the National Government of SHS, the highest legislative and administrative body in Slovenia, was established in Ljubljana.
The Confederacy, which encompassed the territory of the South Slavic people within the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was threatened by Italy, which occupied Primorska region, Istria and Dalmatia in accordance with the London Pact, and by Serbia’s pressure on the implementation of the Corfu Declaration. The SHS state ceased to exist on 1 December 1918, when it merged with the Kingdom of Serbia into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes with the capital in Belgrade.
Exhibition will be on display until 17 November 2019.
