    The Badge was instituted on 9 August 1946 to be awarded to Czechoslovak armed partisans who had fought against the occupying German forces during World War II and were officially enrolled in a Resistance organisation. Its attribution was strictly controlled

    A revolt erupted in August 1944 as Communists, Slovak nationalists, Army officers, and partisans, including Jewish underground fighters from the labour camps, united to overthrow the pro-Nazi Tiso regime. In October, thousands of German troops arrived and the rebellion was crushed on October 27.
