After the First World War significant changes occurred in treatment and care for the disabled and their family members in the Varaždinske Toplice baths, as, according to the available sources, numerous disabled persons were treated in these baths at the time of the newly established Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. Alongside many other changes and novelties in the new state, there were also changes in the Association of bathing resorts, baths, spas, summer resorts, mineral waters and sanatoria. Increasing pressure from various state institutions was being exerted on this bathing resort, whether it was in regard to documentation related to the activities of the bathing resort, to statistical data, or to the accommodation of those disabled in war and their family members and the rights they were entitled to. It is true, as evidenced by the documents, that most disabled persons did not follow the rules related to the accommodation in this bathing resort, so problems often occurred. It was the aftermath of World War I when the lack of certain food items as well as the impoverishment of the local population were still being felt.
Of special interest in this work is the research of the rich archives of Zagreb’s Kaptol (the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Zagreb) which have been stored in the Varaždinske Toplice Local History Museum and published for the first time with the aim to make public the administrative and legal proceedings brought by the war-disabled, widows and orphans during and after the Great War. We are confronted by the facts showing the length of time needed to obtain a positive or a negative decision in regard to receiving support for the disabled. During these lengthy administrative and legal proceedings there were examples of some disability rights heirs even dying after a period of about ten years, while others tried to extort their rights and lost the proceedings.
