Selovec (pronounced [sɛˈlɔːʋəts] or [sɛˈloːʋəts]) is a dispersed settlement in the hills south of Dravograd in the Carinthia region in northern Slovenia.[2]

Mass graves[edit]

Selovec is the site of three known mass graves or unmarked graves associated with the Second World War. The Jeglijenek Meadow Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Jeglijenkov travnik) is located in a meadow 50 m southeast of the house at Selovec no. 16. It is a clearly visible mound containing the remains of two soldiers: a Croatian and a Cossack.[3] The Bricl Mass Grave (Grobišče Bricl) lies in a meadow 50 m west of the Bricelj farm at Selovec no. 13. It contains the remains of five to 12 Croatian soldiers.[4] The Zdih Woods Grave (Grobišče Zdihov gozd) is located 400 m southwest of the house at Selovec no. 15. It contains the remains of one Croatian soldier.[5]
