Mass grave[edit]

Trnje is the site of a mass grave associated with World War II. The Podtrn Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Podtrn) is located on a path about 300 metres (980 ft) north of the settlement. It contains the remains of seven victims believed to be Home Guard prisoners of war from nearby villages that were imprisoned at Loka Castle.[3]
