Cigulevski Vasil

He was born in the village of Bapchor, Kostur region, to a poor village family. He left his wife and small children and joined the partisan movement as early as 1946. In that movement he was one of the most active and responsible partisans and operated as group political commissar in all of the struggles.

In 1947 a decision was made by the Headquarters of the partisan units in Vich to attack the village of Neveska. The battle succeeded and when the partisans were pulling out, a small group had to stay behind to assist the pull out operation. Vasil Cigulevski took on that task with honour. But in that battle he was badly wounded and died in the arms of one of his comrades.
