In the Habsburg hereditary duchy of Styria, German National political and cultural figures such as Rosegger and Svoboda helped lay the foundations of an aggressive, racist, even fascist movement that displayed remarkable and fateful affinities to Adolf Hitler's National Socialism.
Not until April of 1941, when Hitler's armies destroyed Yugoslavia and annexed Lower Styria, did the two parts of the duchy belong once again to the same country (although, as Karner notes, the much-discussed unification of the two parts into a single National Socialist administrative district, or Gau, never took place).
The occupation and "re-Germanization" of Lower Styria occurred under their direction, with little interference from Berlin and according to elaborate plans they had developed in Graz during the 1930s.
