VIKTOR KOS (1899 Podmelc – 1987 Šempeter pri Gorici, buried in Komen).
From 1932 to 1971 he was the Dean of Komen. When Komen was burnt down, he and the chaplain MIRKO RENER (1919 Štjak – 1993 Magdeburg, Germany) voluntarily joined the villagers in exile to Germany and remained at their sides in times of trouble. Both priests have entered the villagers’ hearts as unforgettable spiritual guides who did not abandon them even in the most tragic moments of the violence of war.
