    Although this is a webiste and would normally be placed in the 'Good Military Website' section I have been allowed by the WW2 Living History Association to use some of their photos so I think this is the best place for it.

    The thing with this sort of thing is that it keeps the history alive and the effort these people put on is fantastic, not to mention the cost :)

    Well, finally I´ve found some time and went through my photograph albums. I found some WW2 reenactment picts and a few videos me and my friends made. Enjoy :)


    Battle of Kalište: is a regular event which takes place each year in August and commemorates the actual battle - which took place in Kalište in 1944 http://travel.spectator.sme.sk/articles/1855/kalilte_keeping_the_memory_alive and its casualties not only among soldiers but civilians too, since the residents were accused of harboring partisans during the war, and as a result the village was destroyed, it´s residents shot or they had to flee for their lives.

    I checked, sadly nothing in English, only few articles (Slovak Spectator, wiki etc.) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slovak_National_Uprising The SNU Museum has got only a Slovak website. But I found someone-something named Kalist VI and lots of Star Wars related stuff :D
