Memorial Site in Likavka with a Memorial to the Soldiers and the Partisans Killed during the Uprising

The memorial site with the memorial is situated at the beginning of the Kramariská Valley, behind the town of Likavka, approximately 4 km away from the centre of Ružomberok.

The memorial was revealed on August 29, 1961. It commemorates the tragic events that took place here during the last year of World War II, more specifically on January 26, 1945. On that day, a convoy of ten members from the SS-Sonderkommando killed eleven insurgent soldiers and partisans. Killed in this incident were Ján Paparinský, Karol Tomas, Ján Šimovček, Ján Líška, Enrico Tomanica, Michal Šimovček, Ján Jambor Danke and four other unknown anti-fascists.

The memorial in the shape of a stone beam is surrounded with a metal railing, and there are stone steps to facilitate the access. It is surrounded by beautiful woodland scenery.

In the vicinity of the memorial, you can find a linden tree garden, which was planted on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic.
