Historian Says Maribor Mass Grave Definitely One of Biggest

Ljubljana, 9 August - A historian heading the probing work at a mass grave near Slovenia's second-largest city, Maribor, confirmed reports that it was one of the biggest if not the biggest post-World War II mass grave in Slovenia. According to Mitja Ferenc, 15,000 bodies is probably a conservative estimate.
