At the end of the war, he tried to walk out amongst the retreating German soldiers but he was recognised by his big chin, captured by the Partisans and shot within a five minute period. His body was later displayed ...

    ... built in the early 13th century. It housed both monks and soldiers. It was part of 800 or so such monasteries spread across Europe. They traded between each other in local produce and first proposed the idea of a united Europe. They moved on to become a sort of banking system offering credit.
