Od postelje do pokopališča

The author tackles the subject of the generally only marginally treated transport of the deceased, the issues related to the physical transport from the dwellings of this world to those of the other world.The article's more general introductory part summarises a range of written information on how the deceased were carried or driven in Slovenia. After that follows the case story of a hearse from Smlednik near Ljubljana and of its driver. Finally it presents reflections of people's attitude toward death.
