Voglarji (pronounced [ˈvoːɡlaɾji]; Italian: Carbonari) is a dispersed settlement in the Municipality of Nova Gorica in western Slovenia. It is located on the high plateau known as the Trnovo Forest, overlooking the Vipava Valley.[2] Voglarji includes the hamlets of Zavrh (Italian: Savergo) and Cvetrež.

Mass grave[edit]

Voglarji is the site of a mass grave from the period immediately after the Second World War. The Cvetrež Shaft Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Brezno za Cvetrežem), also known as the Cvetrež 3 Shaft Mass Grave (Grobišče Brezen 3 pri Cvetrežu) is located south of the settlement on the east side of the road to the hamlet of Cvetrež. It contains the remains of Home Guard and Italian prisoners of war, and Slovene and Italian civilians murdered in May 1945.[3]
