Slovenians and the Great War
Ljubljana, 28 July - The First World War, the war that was to end all wars, profoundly affected Slovenians, who at the time lived in and fought for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Historians put the number of Slovenians who died in WWI at up to 90,000 and agree that Slovenia unfairly lost territory after the war.
