(The Legislative Framework of Social Housing in the Slovak Republic 1939 – 1945. The Case Study of Prešov)
Abstract: The aim of contribution is to handle the topic of social oriented housing construction in the period of Slovak Republic 1939 – 1945. The selected period as a interlude between left-engaged architecture of interwar Czechoslovakia and mass social housing construction after 1945, remains still unnoticed. However, Slovak state enforced its own concept of housing policy. The introduction of essential legislative framework of social housing in the selected period, will allow to identify what measures were admitted and why. Therefore the paper emphasizes the ideological background of housing construction. Hypothesis that social housing were intended not only to poorest, but primarily to civil servants is the core of our contribution. The introduction of the process of housing construction in the case study of Prešov city will follow. The choice of this particular city is based on the fact, that Prešov became the biggest town of eastern Slovakia, the regional administration centre and the seat of many important institutions.
