Škrilj (pronounced [ˈʃkɾiːl]; German: Skrill[1][2]) is a remote former settlement in the Municipality of Semič in southern Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included in the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region.[3] Its territory is now part of the village of Planina.

History[edit]

Škrilj was a Gottschee German village. In 1931 the village had six houses. The original residents were expelled in the fall of 1941. Italian troops burned the village during the Rog Offensive in the summer of 1942 and it was not rebuilt after the war.[4]
