Late author Pahor remembered at commemoration in Trieste

By: J.S., STA

A commemoration was held on Wednesday evening at the National Hall in Trieste to pay tribute to late Slovenian author Boris Pahor, who died aged 108 in Trieste on Monday.

Slovenian President Borut Pahor remembered him as a “stubborn and strong-willed person with a clearly developed moral compass, a man who embodied the resistance against all three totalitarianisms”. The city of Maribor meanwhile opened today a book of condolences for Boris Pahor, noting that the writer was made into a freeman of Maribor in 2010. The writer will be laid to rest next Tuesday at St Ana Cemetery in Trieste.
