[VIDEO] WW2 Partisan Hospital and Graveyard

In this episode of INFOtration we are exploring an improvised hospital that helped thousands of wounded fighters during World War 2 – The Central Partisan Hospital. This secluded and historically rich mountain has always seen heavy fighting throughout Croatia’s turbulent history.

This hospital, first of its kind in Europe, was used for the treatment and sheltering of wounded soldiers and civilians of the wider Kordun area. Although the area has lots of historical landmarks, today it’s completely forgotten and abandoned. We can only spread awareness that areas like this exist, and maybe sometime in the future they will be rebuilt and people will remember the fierce battles that happened here in the not so distant past.
