Libeliče, the village that rebelled against the plebiscite outcome

Dravograd, 8 October - Libeliče is a small Slovenian village but one that made history. After it came under Austria following the 1920 plebiscite, it rebelled against the referendum result and joined its homeland, at the time part of the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The locals are still very proud of the achievement and will celebrate it in 2022.
