Minopulos Jordan

Jordan was born in 1929 in the village of Ezerce, Kostur region. His family was very poor. His father served in the Asia Minor conflict and was wounded during that service. Because of that wound and illness he died young and left four fatherless children. His devastated mother sent Jordan to study in the Lerin government pension. There he became angry at the Nazi occupation and Jordan was compelled to return to his own village. He found his family in dire poverty. There was not even a crust of bread. The hardship and the suffering made Jordan hate fascism and capitalism to the death and from a young age he threw himself into the struggle for freedom and a better life. Although he was a small boy at the time of the German occupation he organized the pioneer organization (Aetopula) and helped as a courier and in other roles. In 1947 at the age of 18 he became a member of the CPG and that same year he joined the ranks of DAG.

He served as courier in the 14th brigade of DAG and in the terrible battles on Gramos in 1948 he fell in Gorusija, peak 1632.
