Abstracts
Conclusions related to the role of Ante Pavelić in the Tenth of April action have often been reached on the basis of memoir material, i.e. published testimonies of survivors, whose interpretations are full of inconsistencies. Therefore, research of Pavelić’s role should be primarily based on available archive material on the preparation and the course of the action itself. The material that ought be studied is the one belonging to the holdings of the Secretariat of Internal Affairs of the Socialist Republic of Croatia – the State Security Service; this material has still not been sufficiently researched as concerns this topic. Pavelić’s correspondence is in this context of major importance as well. Concerning Pavelić’s role in this action, two phases should be differentiated. The first phase included collecting reliable information on the state in the country. The objective was establishing a stable and secure link with the country. The second phase was operative, i.e. it included operating in the homeland, however only after the first phase had been brought to a successful ending. According to the knowledge gained from the research conducted so far, Pavelić insisted on the realization of the first phase as an imperative precondition for continuing operation in the homeland. However, Pavelić’s role in the second phase of the action is much more complex. The analysis of the so far unknown Pavelić’s letter to his closest associates, where he tackles the consequences of the action, demonstrates no commanding or authoritative tone. He offers advice, opinions and suggestions, but issues no orders. The analysis of the text further reveals the fact that in the letter itself, there is no indication as to Pavelić having had any knowledge regarding present and future events. This tribute to the study of the Tenth of April action indicates furthermore to the need for follow-up research aiming at unveiling the planning process, the conducting and debacle of the action itself, as well as the consequences caused by its tragic ending. Up to the present, no monograph on this action has been written; this ought to be changed.
