The Island Pag seen from the Velebit mountain range.
After leaving Jadovno I drove through the Velebit mountain range and reached a small fisihing village called Karlobag where Fritz (Fric) (my mom's first husband) died on the way to Jadovno. From there I boarded my rented car on a ferry to the Island Pag where my Aunt Mira and my Grandmother Elza died. I read that they died together with many other women in a place called Slano not far from a small fishing village called Metajna. I read in a book written by Menahem Shelah (Holocaust in Yogoslavia) that the women died in the most difficult situations that words simply cannot express. When I arrived at the village at about 1:30 pm on Monday November 21, 2005 I asked for direction of how to reach Slano (the easiest was I was told was by boat but there was also a way to get there by foot). The following pictures are from that journey:
The beginning of the search. The rented car is seen.
The place itself miles away from where I left the car. It started getting late and I was heading back to the car.
