Public monuments and memorial plaques
The first memorial plaques commemorating Maister were installed before WWII – Kamnik, but the first public monument came relatively late. The reason was mainly the longtime negative attitude of the powers that be towards Maister. It was erected in 1970 in his native Kamnik. The second one, in Maribor, more than one and a half decade later (if we do not count the monument to the fighters for the northern border); then the pace picked up. This is evidenced by numerous monuments to Maister and memorial plaques throughout Slovenia.
