"31 years of shame"


On August 23rd, the opening of the exhibition was held in the Libertas Warehouse, where the erased through the photographic eye of Borut Krajnec reflect on their memories, experiences and attitude to the erasure more than thirty years later.

Izbrisani (“deleted”) are residents of Slovenia who were illegally deleted from the register of permanent residents by the Ministry of the Interior on February 26, 1992. With this, they lost their legal status and the associated economic, health and social rights. The Aliens Act came into force for them, so they were treated as foreigners residing illegally in Slovenia. Among those deleted were persons born in Slovenia.

The exhibition is organized by Amnesty Slovenia in cooperation with the erased.

At the opening of the exhibition, they also organized a lecture on erasure with the testimonies of the erased.
