Hlinka Guard


Hlinka Guard
   The anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi violent armed militia of the Slovak People’s Party, which was supported by the Schutzstaffel (SS). Its founder, Father Andre Hlinka, was a Roman Catholic priest who died in August 1938. Following his death, the guard came under the influence of the Nazis. The Hlinka Guard were distinguished by their uniforms and their armbands, which were blue with a white double cross on a red cotton armband. The double cross symbol was a modification of the Slovakian national emblem, which honors the patron apostles of the Slavs, Saints Methodius and Cyril. Their black uniforms were modeled after those of the SS.
