This paper covers a brief but dynamic period in the history of Baranja, at the time of creation of the first Yugoslav state. When it comes to the area of southern Hungary (Banat, Bačka, Baranja), the crucial events took place in the Grand National Assembly on November 25, 1918, when the decision was made to separate these territories from the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and to incorporate them into the Kingdom of Serbia, i.e. the future Yugoslav state. The aim of the paper is to synthesize and explain the processes and the events that occurred in Baranja immediately before and during the Grand National Assembly in Novi Sad until the First December Declaration when the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenians was established. In this research, archival materials, contemporary newspapers and publications and relevant historiographic literature were used in order to analyze the historical period as accurately and comprehensively as possible.
