"... For a moment, I see and hear the then inhabitants of Trbovlje ... even nowadays I start to cry or laugh ... but all these clouds of memories remain always on the azure blue sky of youth ..."
It is a quotation from the book written by Savo Tory
. He was born in Trbovlje, Zasavje region in Slovenia, in 1919. His career took him to Australia; after retirement he used to spend a few months a year in Sydney, some months in Washington and some on Majorca. However, he found time to explore the history of his family. He presented it in a beautiful and vigorous Slovenian language – the book entitled Rod Torijevih v Zasavju (The Tori family in the Zasavje region)
is now available on the portal.
