This is the family's memorial at Horjul. For the actual grave, see: Bernarda Dolinar

On the night of 20 November 1942 the Partisans attacked three houses in Zaklanec. From the Dolinar farm they abducted Janez Dolinar (65 years old) his wife Marija (57) and their two daughters Ivana (19) and Bernarda (16). From the Zalaznik farm they took Ivana Zalaznik (59) and her daughter Katarina (25). From the Fajdiga farm (Zaklanec no. 10) they took the family's daughter Marija (22). All four of the girls were unmarried. The women were taken to the Broad Creek Gorge (Sln. Široki potok; about 3 km WSW of Dobrova) while Janez Dolinar was forced to transport the plundered possessions and slaughtered animals from his farm to the Bezenica Valley. The Partisans beat him when his oxen, used to hauling manure to the field, turned the wrong way. All seven were killed in the Broad Creek Gorge at two different sites. The bodies of the Dolinars and Marija Fajdiga were disinterred on 19 April 1943 and reburied in the cemetery on 20 April. The bodies of Ivana and Katarina Zalaznik were not found until 2 or 12 April 1945.

CENTER PANEL: "Symbolic grave. Forty-one fallen soldiers in the First World War 1914-1918 and hitherto suppressed victims of the communist revolution 1942-1945. Primarily men and young men from the Slovenian Home Guard, who fought for the bright ideals of God, Nation, and Homeland. They did not fall in battle; after the end of the war they were treacherously betrayed and murdered by their brothers' hands. 'Mother, give me a word / A word of farewell / You're seeing me for the last time / I'll no longer return to you.' – France Balantič. 1994. Erected by the families of the victims and the parishioners of Horjul." RIGHT PANEL: "To you forgotten graves / Where no cross stands upon a stone / Which are not wreathed in flowers / Where no candle burns. – Simon Gregorčič."
