Only the monuments at Hudo polje in Mrzla Rupa and at one of its locations at Krekovše remind us of the whereabouts and activities of this partisan hospital.

After the capitulation of the Italian regime in autumn 1943 the partisan leadership decided to establish a larger hospital for about 100 patients in the centre of the then liberated territory in the area among Vojsko, the Trnovo forest, the upper drainage area of the Idrijca and the Belca rivers, among the roads Čekovnik-Mrzla Rupa-Poslušanje-Mala Gora.

Gradually the hospital facilities were built on various locations, in hidden and inaccessible ravines that were safe from the enemy, all in greatest secrecy. From January 1944 to the end of the war Dr. Pavla (Pavla Jerina Lah)  was the manager and the head doctor of the hospital.

Many a complicated and difficult medical procedure was performed in the hospital by the doctor and her team. Urgent medical assistance was granted to more than six hundred wounded people of different nationalities. There were 114 members of the staff working in the hospital. None of the hospital facilities has been preserved and the monument at Hudo polje is the only remaining proof of the hospital’s past.
