Prime Minister Janez Janša attended the traditional Holy Mass and memorial ceremony in Kočevski Rog

By: UKOM

On Saturday, the Slovenian Prime Minister attended the traditional Holy Mass and memorial ceremony at the Burial Ground below Kren in Kočevski Rog. Prior to the memorial ceremony, Prime Minister Janez Janša and the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, laid a wreath at the pit under Macesnova gorica in Kočevski Rog. After the ceremony, they laid a wreath at the Memorial to the Victims of the National Liberation War at Smrečje near Turjak.

The Holy Mass at the Burial Ground below Kren was led by the retired Archbishop of Ljubljana, Anton Stres, while the president of the Nova slovenska zaveza association, Matija Ogrin, later addressed the guests at the ceremony. In his address, he spoke about the atmosphere during World War II, which dictated decision-making at the time, the meaning of Kočevski Rog, without which it is impossible to understand Slovenian history, and the necessity of drawing up a framework act in this area to establish that a communist revolution happened in Slovenia and that its acts were reprehensible. “Only then can other laws have meaningful effects,” he said.

The ceremony, organised by the Nova slovenska zaveza association, featured a performance by the Male Voice Choir Prijatelji from Šentvid pri Stični and the soloist Marko Fink.
