Commemoration of the “Day of Freedom”, as 28th October, the Czechoslovak Independence Day was called in the interwar period, was one of the most important holidays in the imaginary state calendar of the Czechoslovak Republic. This day was presented as a characteristic turn, as a liberation from the hands of an age-old enemy and at the same time as a new beginning, attached to the foundation of the nation-state and to the republican form of government. Although this day was to be an important feast for all inhabitants of the state, in fact it had not come true, and actually from 1919 this event was mainly represented as a Czechoslovak Memorial Day. The author analyzes the ways of commemoration of 28th October, especially in the Slovak territory, where he focuses mostly on the argumentation of the representatives of the Slovak People’s Party lead by Andrej Hlinka. The study is based primarily on the research of periodicals but sets out from a broader research of commemorative practices during the First Republic. The main emphasis is put on the two round jubilees of 1928 and 1938, during which a significant shift took place in the ways and contents of the official commemoration of that holiday. Based on these events, the author also demonstrates the failure of the officially advocated idea of Czechoslovak national unity and some select features of the Slovak nationalist argumentation.
