74th anniversary of liberation of concentration camp below Ljubelj

Prime Minister addressed the crowd today at the 74th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp below the Ljubelj mountain pass. He warned that such atrocities should never happen again and that unity was needed. He also mentioned recent provocations from Hungary and Italy but stressed that Slovenians did not want conflict. Ljubelj is today the site of the remains of the only concentration camp in Slovenia, which was a branch of the Mauthausen camp. During the war, it housed over 1800 internees, who were there to build the Ljubelj tunnel.
