Knochenbox in Exile - Spirit of the Partisans!
red stars highlight the route of the mountain hike...
scrambling through thick undergrowth
until finally ..a new sign!
The Knochenbox ancillaries spring into support action.
to get the perfect shot of the monument
Sixty nine of the surrounded Partisans were killed by the overwhelming fascist force whilst some thirty, who were out of the encampment at the time of the attack, avoided capture.
a 200 meter circle of stone blocks marking the names and positions of the fallen Partisans
Stone slabs mark the names of the different fighting units who had coollected on the mountaintop
a moment of reflection and a cigar break for Nika our trusty tracking dog
