Third Resistance in South Moravia
The third resistance and the anti-communist resistance were related to the whole territory of Czechoslovakia, but their intensity was not the same in all of the regions. They were affected by many factors strengthening of weakening the resistance. The basic ones included the composition of inhabitants, the iron curtain vicinity, existence of important institutions and conditions for revolution activities. South Moravia has some specific features – high share of the faithful, vicinity of the iron curtain and a part of the area with landscape allowing underground activities. Even though we do not have available any comparison that could exactly distinguish the differences in individual regions, it is apparent for the South Moravia to be one of the regions with strong revolutionary anti-communist movement.
It was established on the basis of a reform in 1948 and it did not exactly match the current area of the South Moravian region. Brno was the centre of the region.
