Victims of post-war summary executions remembered

Kočevski Rog, 6 June - Victims of summary executions conducted after WWII were remembered on Saturday with a ceremony in Kočevski Rog, an area in south Slovenia where multiple mass graves have been discovered. Seventy-five years after the executions, national reconciliation remains elusive and statements by senior officials indicate it is still a remote prospect.
