Ljubelj south concentration camp, branch of Mauthausen
OPEN Tuesday-Sunday: 10.00–18.00 Visit possible only by prior arrangement.
Between 1943 and 1945 on the left-hand side of the road leading up to the Ljubelj pass stood the Ljubelj concentration camp whose purpose was to enable the construction of the Ljubelj tunnel for the German Reich.
At the place where the Ljubelj concentration camp once stood there is a memorial park with the remains of camp huts, other buildings and the crematorium. On the right-hand side of the road stands the “J’accuse” monument which was designed and made as a reminder of wartime events by Boris Kobe and Jože Bertoncelj and was unveiled in 1954. In the cellar of the nearby guesthouse there is a room of remembrance with a permanent exhibition about the Ljubelj concentration camp.
