The monument is set in memory of the villagers who lost their lives during the fight against the occupier. On 15 May 1921, a rebellion of fascists in Marezigah, who threatened voters in the event that they did not give a vote for the Italian nationalist party. When singing fascist songs, they also threatened bombs and self-creflections. Throwing bombs and shooting across the crowd reminded of the terrorist attack of the Italian fascists. The initiative over the crowd was taken by the local Ivan Babič-Jager, which is now called the primary school in Marezigah. This encouraged the villagers to fight with the tools and means at their disposal - so the locals gathered over the fascists with shovels, villas and stone them. The resistance lasted a few days, while the fascists killed civilians and destroyed the surrounding villages.
