Summary/Abstract: First, the paper presents the German and Italian invasions in Europe before the Second World War and the different types of their occupying systems introduced for various objectives: from pure military strategy to annexation. On the basis of his yearlong research, the author then presents the German, Italian and Hungarian occupying systems in Slovenia between 1941 and 1945, their main characteristics (the carving up of the ethnic territory, annexation policies, assimilation, racism, etc.) as well as underlining the elements which distinguished these systems from similar others in Europe.
