Print Add to travel planner
Address: Dolenji Novaki 5282 Cerkno
The Franja Partisan hospital is one of the few preserved partisan hospitals. It represents a symbol of Slovene partisan health care and bears witness to incredible humanity and self-sacrifice of the health care and other personnel taking care of the wounded. The complex of the Franja Partisan Hospital is comprised of 14 wooden barracks and several auxiliary facilities. They were gradually built in the narrow, difficult to access Pasica gorge in Dolenji Novaki near Cerkno. The construction lasted from December 1943 to May 1945. The hospital was named after a partisan doctor, Dr. Franja Bojc Bidovec, who shortly after the hospital was established, took on the function of its administrator. The Franja Partisan Hospital was among the best equipped secret patizan hospitals with an operating room, X-ray, disability ward and even electricity plant. It could admit up to 100 wounded and provided treatment for a total of 578 persons, especially seriously wounded. The hospital also included several dislocated wards for lightly wounded. All wards provided treatment to about 900 wounded of various nationalities. The Franja Partisan Hospital is a cultural monument of national importance, is entered in UNESCO's Tentative List of World Heritage, and bears the European Heritage Label. After the disastrous flood that occurred in September 2007, the monument has been reconstructed almost in its entirety, and is reopened for visitors from May 2010. Despite the loss of authentic tangible heritage, it has remained a symbol of international alliance and resistance, and above all a precious reminder of humanity, nobleness, and comradeship.
