Cvetkov Stavro

Stavro Cvetkov was born in the village of Elsjani, Ser region in 1912. From as early as 1933 he joined the revolutionary movement and at the time of the Nazi occupation he developed active operations in the battle against the German and Bulgarian fascist occupiers and against their local servants. Thanks to his capabilities and operations, his whole village joined the ranks of EAM-ELAS and rose up in the battle against the occupier. After the liberation of our homeland, he continued the struggle as an instructor of the political organizations of the masses in the region.

In the second phase of the armed struggle he worked so well that he succeeded in getting more than 45 people in his village to become partisans with DAG even though his village was located in the middle of the plains.

Stavro showed particular heroism in the ranks of DAG and self sacrifice and died for the party and the people.
