Markov Jordan

Jordan Markov was born in the village of Zhelevo, Lerin, to a poor family. At the time of the German-Italian occupation, Jordan was among the first from Zhelevo to move to the path of the national liberation struggle. He joined the ranks of the CPG and worked actively in his own village, organising the population in the struggle against the occupier. Because of his capabilities and activism, he was elected a member of the Prespa regional committee of EAM. Jordan was an illiterate youth. But that did not stop him from employing his forces in the service of the national liberation struggle. He went from one village to the next and informed the population about the struggle against the occupier. Later, when the ethnically based divisive elements appeared in our movement, Jordan fought against the divisive elements; he fought for unity between the Macedonian and Greek people. Because of his patriotic activity and participation in the struggle, after the Varkiza agreement he was placed under surveillance by the reactionary forces.

In the second phase of the armed battle Jordan was among the first fighters of DAG. He took part in many battles. In the month of August 1948, in the great battles of Gramos, he fell on the peak Haros.
