Kalaputi Jani

Jani Kalaputi was born in the village Nestram, Kostur region. He was a member of the CPG and at the time of the Hitler occupation participated actively in the national liberation struggle. He rose up the ranks of the CPG in the Kostur region and worked in Kostur. His revolutionary patriotic activity led to his arrest by the German Gestapo and he was brutally tortured to betray the organisation. They cut pieces of his flesh from his body. They poured salt into his wounds and finally hanged him.

Jani died calling out "Long live CPG!"
