The Doberdò plateau has left an indelible imprint on the Slovenian collective memory. A Slovenian folk song dates from that time, entitled Oj, Doberdob (Oh, Doberdò), which suggestively recalls the heavy fights and the graves of numerous youths: Oj Doberdob, oj Doberdob, slovenskih fantov grob (Oh, Doberdò, oh, Doberdò, the grave of Slovenian lads…). The monument, dedicated to the fallen Slovenian soldiers on the Isonzo Front, was unveiled in 2016.
