Abstract: Economic crisis in the 1930s´ radicalised also the attitude of inhabitants of Czechoslovakia. Among the young Slovak generation this was manifested by reevaluation of their attitude to civil and legal status of Slovakia. This contribution is dedicated to three significant events in the years 1932 and 1933: The congress of the young Slovak generation in Trenčianske Teplice, the congress of young agrarian generation in Zvolen and Pribina´s festivities in Nitra. On this example is demonstrated the denial of the state‑enforced ideology of Czechoslovakism by the whole young generation with no regards of party affiliation. Despite this consensus of opinions the representatives of the young generation still could not overcome the differences accruing from the party affiliation and agree on the common requirements which would lead to the solution of Slovak issue.
