Writer’s villa on Tomšičeva in Ljubljana

The writer's villa on Tomšičeva in Ljubljana is the 21st pocket book in the collection Umetnine v žepu (Art in pocket). In it the author, dr. Barbara Vodopivec, presents the history of one of the comfortable villas that Kranjska stavbna družba built for the city's elite on the outskirts of old Ljubljana. The Češko and Ebenspanger families first lived in the villa, which is an important architectural monument from the end of the 19th century. After the Second World War, Boris Kidrič and after him Boris Ziherl settled in it, and in 1957 it was rented by the Association of Slovenian Writers and bought it in 1987. The events in the villa were most marked by the writers, and the villa at Tomšičeva 12 in particular was written down in Slovenian history in the 1980s, when writers worked hard for the democratization of society and the independence of Slovenia. At the presentation of the booklet, Boris Hajdinjak will also present the story of the Jewish Ebenspanger family, and the fate of Jewish families before and during the Second World War in general. The conversation with the author will be led by the editor of the book collection Umetnine v žepu dr. Marjeta Ciglenečki.
