World War II

During World War II, the inhabitants of the village took part in the anti-Nazi resistance. In December 1944 the Nazis captured the guerrilla group and after interrogation and torture they obtained information about their supporters: 14 people of the village were executed, 10 were deported into a concentration camp. In 1978, a memorial of the guerrilla movement was declared a national cultural monument.[1][2]
