Monument At the Partisan

Pomník partyzána Francoise Wasteelse na Ojíčné (2005)There is a monument called At the partisan on a hill Ojičná, near a hiking trail. A partisan Francois Wasteels, known as Franta Belgian, was killed there on the 8th March 1945. After that this place was called “At the Partisan”. At the place where he died, was originally erected a wooden cross. After some time, the place overgrew with bushes and was not clearly visible. That is why the members of the Association of Antifascist Fighters built a new monument. It was not built at the original place, but about 50 m north of it, more closely to the hiking trail.
