Kalojanovski Petre

Petre Kalojanovski was born in the village Bahovo, Karadzhovsko region in 1925. After he completed primary school in his own village, he worked as a tailor.

In the dark years of the German occupation Petre joined the ranks of the OKNE. Once EPON was formed, he became the secretary of the local committee. On 19 January 1944 together with 26 other EPON members from Bahovo, he was arrested by the fascists and taken to the Solun camp "Pavlos Melas". On 3 March 1944, 10 of the arrested youths were executed by the Germans while Petre together with four others managed to escape from the prison. He immediately became involved in organising and joined the ranks of ELAS where he fought until the Varkiza agreement was made.

Petre was among the first fighters who joined the ranks of DAG and fought heroically.

On 28 December 1948 he was in the attack by DAG on the village S'bachko and was killed there as a company commander.
