They were trying to destroy so called bandits in several attempts but they failed untill the information from the traitors about battalions secret location. Pohorje battalion was fighting with 30 times stronger german forces and was destroyed after several hours of severe fighting. All fighters died. Among them was particularly heroic Alfonz Šarh who died at the end of the battle with his three sons Lojzek(16), Pepček(14) and Vanček(12).
