30 years after Kočevski Rog event, reconciliation still far away

Ljubljana, 8 July - Thirty years to the day a commemoration was held in the Kočevski Rog woods in a bid to heal the wounds the nation suffered as a result of post-WWII summary killings by Partisans. The event is believed to have made the nation more united when it was seeking independence, while many are convinced that it is even more divided now.
