Abstracts
The study investigates the relation of the police intelligence system of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) towards Kingdom of Hungary in the II World War on the basis of available archival sources and the existing literature. Relationship between two neighbouring states were tense because Hungarian was occupied Međimurje and Baranja. The entire police (and administrative) system of the NDH was set up folowing the models, but also under direct patronage, of fascist Italy and nazi Germany. A particular problem in the work of police and intelligence services was that the territory of the NDH was covered by networks of other, generally unfriendly intelligence services that had to be detected, observed and neutralised. Therefore, the Hungarian police-intelligence services as well as the German and Italy were treated by the NDH authorities as hostile.
