Andreopulos Hristo

Hristo was born in the Kostur village of Nestram. He was a long time member of CPG and in the time of the Nazi occupation he participated in the national resistance and because of that he was arrested by the Italian fascists. They tortured him inhumanely and then took him to the monastery Chuka, where witnesses had told them weapons were hidden. Hristo led them to a cliff that was 150 metres high. Then he turned to the fascists said "Well, here are the rifles," and he threw himself off the cliff. The brave communist killed himself, taking the secret about the location of the weapons with him.
