We spent yesterday in Storje, a small village in the wine region of Slovenia, an hour’s drive from Ljubljana.
Like the rest of Slovenia, Storje is lovely, and we will write more about it – and the capital city – later.
But during our walk we came across the village cemetery, and a headstone that bore this simple inscription:
1904 – Dachau
Mr Righetti died in a Nazi death camp, and it is unlikely his body was buried in Storje, but his memorial stands tall there.
Today I wrote a piece about his death, and about the European Union and Brexit.
It is probably too political for this travel site, so it is posted on my personal website where I can sound off about what I like.
Or if you prefer you can wait to hear about our adventures in Slovenia, and the delights of orange wine.
