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.
