An estimated 5,000 victims of war and post-war summary executions were commemorated at a memorial mass in Teharje.
More than 600 unmarked killing or burial sites across Slovenia bear witness to these atrocities, said retired Celje Bishop Stanislav Lipovšek at the annual ceremony. He stressed the importance of efforts to mark the graves and properly bury the victims. He also urged stepped-up efforts to tackle open issues related to war and post-war events and reach national reconciliation.
