Medugorje literally translated means 'Between the Hills". The story behind these souvenir pendants is as follows:
"On the afternoon of June 24, 1981, two girls, Ivanka Ivankovic (15) and Marjana Dragicevic (16), from the Bijakovici section of Medjugorje were returning home from a walk. Looking towards the hill called Crnica, Ivanka saw a bright silhouette of a woman. She said to Mirjana, "It is the Gospa!" (Our Lady). Marijana would not look and they both ran off in fear."
Medal measures 3/4" X 1/2", and is in excellent vintage condition.
