  Coat of arms
Nemecká (22 km)

The stone figure of a kneeling woman with hands outstretched in front of a stylized flame will forever remind us of the events of the Slovak National Uprising. About 600 people were tortured to the death by fascist soldiers in a lime-quarry, located at the entrance to the Ráztoky Valley, in January, 1945. Soviet and French partisans, members of an Anglo-American military expedition, but also women and small children were victims of this tragedy. The lime-quarry was piously arranged after the war and today the building, documenting this period, is used as the museum.   >   Surroundings   >   Nemecká
