Mechkarovski Hristo

He was born in the village of Bukovik, Prespa region. His father Pando Mechkarov was a progressive man and, as a result, always had problems with the police. Hristo at the time of the German occupation joined the ranks of the liberation movement and worked as an officer of EPON in his own village. After the Varkiza agreement he did not cease his work for EPON and because of that he was arrested and sent to jail. After his release in 1947 he joined the ranks of DAG at the headquarters in Vich. He took part in all of the battles of the 18th brigade, and in the battle near the village of Leshtina in 1948 he died a hero.
