History

The first urban settlement in the area of Celje appeared in the Hallstatt era. The settlement was known in the Celtic times as Kelea; Celts coined money in the region. After being made part part of the Roman Empire, it became known as Civitas Celeia. It received municipal rights in 46 AD under the name municipium Claudia Celeia during the reign of Roman Emperor Claudius (41-54). Written records allege it was rich and densely populated, secured with the walls and towers, full of multi-story marble palaces, wide squares, and streets. It was called Troia secunda, or the second or small Troy. A Roman road through Celeia led from Aquileia (Oglej) to Pannonia. Celeia soon became one of the most flourishing Roman colonies, and possessed numerous great buildings, of which the temple of Mars was famous throughout the whole empire. Celeia was incorporated with Aquileia ca. 320 under Roman Emperor Constantine I (272-337).

After the Counts of Celje died out in 1456, the region was inherited by the Habsburgs of Austria and administered by the Duchy of Styria. The city walls and defensive moat were built in 1473.

Celje was occupied by Nazi Germany during World War II. Nazis committed many war crimes against civilians at a prison called the Stari pisker ("old pot") and in the surroundings such as Frankolovo, where many Slovenian patriots were hanged from trees. A prisoner's last letters from Stari pisker were published as a book after the war. Men of the Gestapo came to Celje on April 16, 1941 and were followed three days later by SS leader Heinrich Himmler, who inspected Stari pisker.

The toll of the war was terrible. The city (including nearby towns) had a pre-war population of 20,000 and lost 575 people during the war, mostly between the ages of 20 and 30. More than 1,500 people were deported to Serbia or into the interior of the German Third Reich. Around 300 people were interned and around 1,000 people imprisoned in Celje's prisons. An unknown number of citizens were forcibly mobilized in the German army. Around 600 "stolen children" were taken to Germany for Germanization.

After the end of the war, the remaining German-speaking portion of the populace was expelled. The new communist government took advantage of existing anti-tank trenches, dug around Celje by the retreating German army, by using them as mass graves. They were filled with Croatian, Serbian, and Slovenian soldiers who had collaborated with the Germans, as well as civilians who had opposed the national liberation front and Communist movement during the war; the purpose was to physically eliminate any potential political opposition. On the pretext of collaboration with the enemy, the Yugoslav National Army executed more than 30,000 - mostly Croat and Slovenian - prisoners in the Celje area, without any judicial process. The bodies were buried in hidden mass graves in Celje; the exact number is still not known. At the concentration camp at Teharje, some 5,000 Slovenians, hundreds of them still minors, were murdered within two months after the end of the war, again without trial. After the concentration camp was abolished in 1950, the local authorities established a huge industrial dump on the gravesite, concealing the evidence under a vast hill of toxic waste. In 1991, when discussing facts pertaining to the massacre was no longer taboo, the Slovenian government decided to build a memorial to the victims of Teharje.
