Grahovo

Grahovo is a village on the eastern shores of Lake Cerknica in the Municipality of Cerknica in the Inner Carniola region of Slovenia.NameGrahovo was attested in written sources in 1355 and 1499 as Grochaw . The name is probably derived from the personal name Grah, which is still preserved as a surname in Slovenia and is probably borrowed from the Old High German name Gracco. The place name would thus mean 'Grah's '. Another possible derivation is from the common noun *grahovišče 'pea field' via the contracted form *grahovše. Direct derivation from the Slovene common noun grah 'pea' is unlikely because of the rarity of such names and the suffixation pattern.MemorialsIn 1990, a memorial to poet France Balantič was erected in front of the local school. In 2014, another memorial was erected to 32 Slovene Home Guard members that were killed in the 1943 attack by the Slovene Partisans. The choice to erect it on anniversary date of the 1941 Axis invasion of Yugoslavia was met with criticism by the Slovene Partisan veterans association, Primorski Puntarji, and some left-wing political parties, which accused right-wing political leaders of trying to rehabilitate collaborationism. In addition to the left-wing veterans associations, the petition against the second monument was also signed by the TIGR veterans association.
