KIDRIČ

1912

ljudstvo, ki se je bilo v najhujših trenutkih svoje zgodovine odločilo, da raje
stoje umre, kakor kleče živi, in je prav s to herojsko odločitvijo utrlo pot
svoji osvoboditvi, ne bo svobode nikoli več izpustilo iz rok        b. kidrič

People who were in the worst moments of their history decided rather to die standing
than to live kneeling, and with this heroic decision also paved the way for its
liberation, freedom will never let it go       B. Kidrič
