Most people will tell you that in 1939, Hitler annexed Czechoslovakia. This is technically wrong: he annexed the Czech Republic, but he turned Slovakia into an independent puppet state. This short-lived Slovak republic was run by the Hlinka Guard, a far-right party that freely borrowed Nazi symbols and uniforms.

While fascism didn’t last in Slovakia, some Slovakian fascism has survived on YouTube. Here are some videos that do a good job of showing it. When watching non-German fascist parties from this era, I am always amazed by just how blatantly they rip off their German allies. Check out the armbands with the Apostolic Cross on it (a symbol which Slovakia stole from Hungary anyway).
