Treated in the shelter of the forest: Partisan hospitals in the Kočevski rog

13. 10. 2017 – 31. 12. 2017

Venue: Mala dvorana
The exhibition is open from 13. oktober 2017 to 31. december 2017

The exhibition presents a rich collection of objects from the time of World war II related to partisans hospitals in Kočevski rog. With the exhibition we want to represent the preserved hospitals Jelendol and the Upper Hrastnik, both of which are the monuments of national importance and for which Dolenjski muzej provides museum service. Kočevski rog with its hospitals was the Central and most important point of partisan health care during the European resistance movement of World War II.

At the exhibition we present an outline of the development of SCVPB, the construction of its facilities, a number of efforts to maintain its secrecy, problems with care, challenges and innovative improvisation in the treatment of the wounded and patients and how everyday life was held in hospitals.
