„The Austrian Germans and Magyars will be set free and wreak a bloody revenge on the Slav barbarians. The general war which will then break out will smash this Slav Sonderbund and wipe out all these petty hidebound nations, down to their very names. The next classes and dynasties, but also of entire reactionary peoples. And that, too, is a step forward.“
— Friedrich Engels German social scientist, author, political theorist, and philosopher 1820 - 1895
Referring to the Serb uprising of 1848–49, in which Serbs from Vojvodina fought against the previously victorious Hungarian revolution.
