History

Lignite mining was begun at Huda Jama in 1813 by the Gadolla family. The mine was operated by various owners until 1855, when Paul von Putzer transferred operations to Brezno in 1855. Mining was resumed in Huda Jama in 1890. During the Second World War, the Partisans attacked German positions at Huda Jama on 2 July 1942 and 25 March 1944. After the second attack, they used the mine in the settlement as a shelter.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The history of the past is but one long struggle upward to equality.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    Let us not underrate the value of a fact; it will one day flower in a truth. It is astonishing how few facts of importance are added in a century to the natural history of any animal. The natural history of man himself is still being gradually written.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
