Description The study deals with the development and instrumentalization of the Handlová strike (1940)in the historiography before 1989. In the paper, I will provide the situation that preceded thestrike and then the analysis of its process. It will also be necessary to determine who initiatedthe strike and what role the illegal communist movement played in it. I am going to comparethe forms of instrumentalization with some of the claims made by historiography after 1989.In the context of instrumentalization of a strike, several questions arise. Was this a signi?canthistoriographic milestone? For what purpose was it used? Who and why was he the maintainerof his instrumentalization? How much in?uence had the communists during the strike?
