Geocache Description:

Seria „VYSIDLENCI“ --- „DISPLACED“ Series –-- GC Blažov

SK: V suvislosti so zriadenim Vojenskeho vycvikoveho priestoru Javorina zaciatkom 50-tych rokov 20.storocia muselo dojst ku kompletnemu vysidleniu 4 obci na uzemi buduceho VVP. Vysidlovanie jednotlivych obci prebiehalo problematicky, no v pripade Blazova to bolo este komplikovanejsie.
Obyvatelstvo tejto obce vystupovalo nezvycajne jednotne a svorne odmietli stahovat sa. Ziadali, aby im boli postavene nove domy pri Spisskej Kapitule a uplne ignorovali ponuky na vystahovanie sa do inych lokalit. Armada a politicki cinitelia zacinali byt z odsuvania terminu vystahovania nervozni, a preto pristupili k razantnejsim metodam – v osade Certez armada sustredila 20 prislusnikov Zboru narodnej bezpecnosti, ktori mali zabranit vstupu obyvatelov do osady, pripadne ich uteku do okolitych lesov. O vyhrotenosti situacie svedci aj fakt, ze podla zdrojov z Archivu MV SR v Levoci sucastou vyzbroje kazdeho z 20 prislusnikov ZNB bol samopal s dvoma plnymi zasobnikmi. Samotne vysidlenie Blazova sa zacalo 30. maja 1952 o 8:00 rano. Ako prve boli vysidlene osoby, ktore boli oznacene za stvacov a rebelantov a do vecera 31.maja bola vysidlena cela obec Blazov s osadou Blazovska Dolina.
Aj ked podla oficialneho hlasenia nedoslo zo strany prislusnikov ZNB k ziadnemu represivnemu zakroku, domaci obyvatelia nikdy nezabudnu na obec, obklucenu nakladnymi autami, sanitkami, vojakmi a policajtami, ked nesmeli ani vyjst z domu a ked sa im vyhrazali vystahovanim na Sibir. Piati obyvatelia Blazova boli neskor na zaklade spravy okresneho prokuratora sudeni za nasilie na verejnom cinitelovi, ktoreho sa mali dopustit pocas demolacie domov, ku ktorej doslo pocas navratu nespokojnych obyvatelov do obce v juli 1954. Vysidlenie tejto obce postihlo celkovo 837 ludi.

Keska je najlahsie pristupna z cesty, ktora spaja Nizne Repase s Tichym Potokom a je ulozena v jej bezprostrednej blizkosti. Aj ked VVP Javorina bol oficialne zruseny k 31.12.2006, dlhe roky sa po tomto uzemi nekontrolovane pohybovali vojaci a vojenska technika. Preto budte pri pohybe mimo spominanej cesty vratane vsetkych jej odbociek opatrni. Vstupny bod na tuto cestu od Niznych Repas je k dispozicii ako Additional waypoint.

EN: Four villages had to be completly evacuated due to creating of Military Training Area Javorina in early 1950-ties. Process of evacuation was complicated, but in Blazov it was even more complicated.
Population of this village was very uniform and all of them refused to move out. They wanted to live in new houses near Spisska Kapitula and totaly ignore any offer to live in another location. Army and politicans were getting very nervous and they started to use harder methods – 20 policemans were placed to the village to avoid the inhabitans of Blazov to enter the village or move out to the forests. The act of displacing began at 8am, May 30th 1952. Firstly the persons marked as “instigator“ and „malcontent“ were evacuated and till the evening, May 31st 1952 the whole Blazov was evacuated.
According to official report, no repressive action was used by policemans, but some domestics will never forget the view on the village, encirclemented by trucks, ambulance, soldiers and policemans, when they wasn’t permitted even go outside their houses and were threated with moving out to the Siberia. Later, five inhabitants of Blazov were accused against the violence on policemans, which had to be done during demolation of some houses and return of discontented inhabitans in July 1954. Evacuation of Blazov affected 837 people.

Cache is easily accessible from road connecting Nizne Repase with Tichy Potok and is placed close to it. Although MTA Javorina was officialy re-open for public at January 1st, 2007, be careful while moving apart from this road (incl. all connections) due to uncontrolled activity of soldiers and military machineries in area for more than 50 years. Access point to this road from Nizne Repase can be found as Additional waypoint.
