This is the memorial for Anton Garbajs in Šentpavel. For the memorial to him in Sostro, see: Anton Garbajs.
Yugoslav military police (KNOJ) arrived in Šentpavel on 4 July 1945, where they abducted several men and took them away. They were shot in the woods above the mills on the Reka River, below the hamlet of Razore (in the village of Zagradišče). Although they had been killed immediately, the authorities told the villagers that the men were in prison, and so their families sent regular care packages to them. This continued until mid-August 1945, when a local discovered the men's bodies buried in two pits in the woods. However, before the villagers could rebury them in the local cemetery, the bodies were taken away and reburied anonymously in a mass grave at Saint Ulrich's Church in the Ljubljana neighborhood of Dobrunje.
Anton Garbajs was the brother of Mihael Garbajs. He was unmarried, living in Ljubljana, and employed as a carpenter. He was visiting Šentpavel that afternoon and was abducted together with his brother.
