100 Frankolovo Victims Museum - The Frankolovo Crime on Stranice

The "100 Frankolovo Victims" Museum was established in honour of an event from World War II when 100 Slovenian patriots were hung in Graben na Stranicah. The cruel crime against Slovenian patriots, committed on 12 February 1945 in Graben na Stranicah, is considered to be one of the worst Nazi crimes of World War II. The hanging was executed to avenge the death of a prominent Nazi functionary Anton Dorfmeister, who was killed in a partisan ambush in the Tesno gorge on 2 February 1945. In return for his life, the Nazis brought 100 hostages from the prisons in Maribor, Celje and Trbovlje to the Old Pot (Stari pisker) prison in Celje, where they hung them from the apple trees lining the road and buried them in two mass graves. To mark the 60th anniversary of this crime, the "100 Frankolovo Victims" Memorial Society from Stranice established a permanent collection in the museum house next to the graves. In 2006, the author of the collection, MSc Tone Kregar, received the Valvasor Award for compiling this collection.
