Kalchov Stefo

Stefo Kalchov was born in the village Zhuzelci, Kostur region. He was one of the first partisans in ELAS in Kostur. He participated in many battles, in all of which he showed great heroism. His last battle saw him alone in the hours before he fought single-handedly against the German army on a hill near the village of Nestram. At the end he was surrounded on all sides and when his cartridges were finished they captured him alive. Enraged by Stefo's bravery, the Germans savaged him. They cut off his ears and his nose, they gouged out his eyes, and beheaded him with knives.
