TOREIZ
Šaja vieta pirms gandriz 100 gadiem atradas pasaules kara frontes linija un notika legendaras Ziemassvetku kaujas, kas bija lielaka krievu armijas militara operacija Rigas fronte I pasaules kara laika. Lielakas cinu grutibas šajas kaujas nacas iznest latviešu strelnieku vienibam, kas cieta loti lielus zaudejumus - apmeram 5000 latviešu strelnieku Ziemassvetku kaujas krita, tika ievainoti vai pazuda.
Plašaja Ziemassvetku kauju sektora vaciešiem bija izbuveti divi ipaši specigi nocietinajumu mezgli – viens no tiem šeit, Mangalu rajona, un otrs Ložmetejkalna. Vacu armijas 16.landšturma kajnieku bataljons frontes iecirkni pie Mangaliem ienema 1915.gada oktobra otraja puse un, nespejot turpinat uzbrukumu Rigas virziena, uzsaka frontes nocietinašanas darbus linija pari Tirelu purvam uz Olaini. Uzbertais zemes valnis vietam parsniedza pat 2,5 metru augstumu, ta iekšpuse un arpuse tika nostiprinata ar balkiem un deliem. Bez pirmas aizsardzibas linijas bija izbuveta ari otra. Savukart starp šim nepartrauktajam nocietinajumu linijam tika izbuveti specigi atbalsta punkti, kuros bez tieši saimniecisku vajadzibu nodrošinošam buvem atradas ari tadas frontes linijai neparastas buves ka teatris, klubs un baznica.
Mangalu rajona esošie nocietinajumi ir ipaši tadel, ka šeit atrodas 1.latviešu strelnieku brigades vacu frontes parravuma vieta un tieši šeit iesakas Ziemassvetku kaujas. Uzbrukums sakas pec veca laika 1916.gada 23.decembi, aktiva karadarbiba ilga 7 dienas, tapec ari radies nosaukums „Ziemassvetku kaujas”.

TAGAD
1993.gada 9.janvari šeit tika uzstadita pieminas zime – 6 metrus augsts priedes koka zobens, kas simbolize vacu aizsardzibas liniju, kuru parcirtis latviešu strelnieku zobens.
Netalu no slepna atrodas „Mangalu” majas, kas ir viena no Latvijas Kara muzeja sastavdalam. Pašlaik teritorija, bez rekonstrueta nocietinajumu sistemas posma, atrodas vacu I pasaules kara fortifikacijas buvju paliekas, kuras Ziemassvetku kauju laika bija viens no nozimigakajiem latviešu strelnieku kaujas darbibas objektiem.
