Description of mountain:
In the end of the year 1944, in the autumn on Formila/Boč was established a partisan hospital with partisan name or code 0V-3B. Besides a smaller local partisan unit in this area there were operating also units of Kozjansko detachment and XIV division. Boč was the main connection between Kozjansko and Pohorje. Few ten fighters were being treated at the hospital. It was in the safe shelter of a karst sinking river. In the shack there were bunk beds in two lines and the roof was covered with dirt, moss, branches, leaves...Despite frequent German pursuits in the area it was successfully operating until the treason in March 1945. The wounded were moved in time to an alternative location above Makole. The cave with karst sinking river is still a visible memory, above it there is into the wall built memorial plaque, while the shack, which was renovated in the year 1993 is in bad condition because of vandalism. Today, even though it is directly by the forest road it is still well hidden. It's located somewhere in distance of two hundred meters left, a little below the forest road in the direction from the clearing Formila towards Makole or Plešivec...
