A memory of fear, uncertainty and inhuman torture during investigation procedures lingers on. Many a prisoner was sent to concentration camps, mostly Dachau and Mathausen. Extreme Nazi form of repressing the love to freedom were executions of hostages by shooting.
894 people from prisons in Begunje were put to death in this manner. On 4th
May 1945 the detachment of Partizan army took over the prisons in Begunje and set 632 prisoners free. This day marks a holiday in Begunje that is honoured with a commemorative ceremony every year.
