Rolf Jørgen Fuglesang

Rolf Jørgen Fuglesang was a Norwegian secretary to the National Unity party government of Vidkun Quisling 1940–1941 and minister 1941–1942 and 1942–1945. He was President of the Kulturting 1943–1945. Fuglesang, educated in law, was from the beginning, one of Quisling's most loyal followers and played an important role under the establishment of NS and the building of the Nazi administration during the German occupation. In the early stages of the occupation, he was regarded by the Germans as one of their strongholds, among others, due to his focus on the National Socialist race-ideas. Towards the end of the war, however, he was a figurehead of the opposition to the Germans inside NS. During the legal purge in Norway after World War II, he was sentenced to lifelong imprisonment, but released in 1956, his daughter was married to art historian Per Jonas Nordhagen, a son of Rolf Nordhagen, for some time.

Trnovo Forest Plateau

The Trnovo Forest Plateau is a karst plateau that constitutes the extreme northwest end of the Dinaric Alps. The Trnovo Forest Plateau has a karst character, without surface watercourses and broken up by closed valleys, hills, caves and smaller karst features: solution pans, rills and other features. Significant karst features include ice caves; the vegetation inversion at Big Paradana Ice Cave in the eastern part of the plateau, measuring 385 meters by 1,550 meters, is a locus classicus and in the past ice was harvested from it and exported via Gorizia and Trieste to Egypt. The Trnovo Forest Plateau has three nature reserves: Big Paradana Ice Cave Golak Peaks and Spruce Valley The Smrečje forest reserve The influence of tectonic activity is evident in the area. There are many depressions, solution valleys, small karst poljes, the remains of former river valleys. During the Pliocene the rivers filled the valleys. Traces were left by Pliocene glaciation because glaciers created small cirques on what had been a level surface, as well as ground moraines and terminal moraines.

The rivers deposited it in lower areas, filling the depressions. The north side of the plateau shows tectonic formation along the Idrija Fault oriented in the Dinaric direction, the south side shows the results of tectonic thrusting of Mesozoic limestone and dolomite over younger Eocene flysch. Two-thirds of the surface is covered by limestone, one-fourth by dolomite, the remainder is flysch and loose material; the climate of the Trnovo Forest Plateau is defined by its orientation. The Trnovo Forest Plateau lies in a continental temperature zone, it receives an average of 1,881 millimeters of precipitation per year. Differences in the quantity of precipitation differ little on a monthly basis; the greatest precipitation is in the least in February. The majority of winter precipitation is in the form of snow at higher elevations; the bora wind is a typical weather phenomenon, blowing down from the plateau towards the sea with gusts exceeding 100 kilometers per hour. The bora can cause considerable damage in the area, uprooting trees and tearing the roofs off of houses.

Despite the abundant precipitation, karst plateaus have no water. The drainage divide is unclear because of the karst surface; the largest spring is that of the Hubelj River near Ajdovščina. The Trnovo Forest Plateau is covered by mixed fir forest; the highest vegetation is on Little Mount Golak, bare at the summit, below which grow dwarf willow and mountain pine. Protected flora grows in the rocky crevices, including the Carniolan primrose; the share of forest is 75.5%, but this is increasing because of the afforestation of abandoned farmland. Poor accessibility has resulted in good preservation of the landscape features; the highest peaks are overgrown with mountain grass. Dinaric beech and fir forest grow at elevations between 1,200 meters. At lower elevations this transitions into Dinaric submontane beech forest. There is little shrubland. Chromic cambisol and rendzina have developed on Cretaceous and Jurassic limestone and on Triassic dolomite. More acidic soils are found only on limestone with chert.

Due to karstification, the depth of regolith is uneven. The substantial precipitation erodes the soil, it is carried away by the bora wind in exposed locations; the plateau had a population of 4,534 in the 1991 census, the population density was only 9 per square kilometer, making the area one of the most sparsely populated in Slovenia. Only the western part is inhabited; the settlements were formed through more recent high-elevation colonization, the dominant patterns are clustered villages and isolated farms. The age profile of the population is unfavorable. In addition to forestry, farming is an important economic activity; the basic farming activity is animal husbandry raising cattle. The share of the farming population is 14.4%. Tourism is becoming important: the steep slopes of the plateau attract hikers, some karst features attract visitors ice caves and sinkholes because of the vegetation associated with them.
