Description of commemoration

A memorial plaque was placed on the building of the Commune Office in Dúbravy in 1975, on which the names of 15 Gypsies murdered in Zvolen are listed. There is no information that they belong to the Roma, and this fact is only indicated only by the surname Klinec. The plaque names 15 Gypsies and 7 non-Gypsies (including one non-Gypsy woman).
