Pechkovi Hristo and Tome
Both of them were born in the village of Ostrovo, Voden. Hristo was
actively involved in ELAS. Again in the second phase of the partisan
movement he joined the ranks of DAG and later his brother Tome joined.
Both of them were in the detachments at Pajak-Kajmachkalan.
The monarcho-fascist forces were lined up on the peak Kajmachkalan
with the aim of preventing the partisan detachment from Vich contacting
that of Kajmachkalan. At that time they initiated fighter operations
and at that time you could not get from Dzhena to the Lerin plain near
Kajmachkalan. The detachment was forced to go that way: Papdija - Chegan
- Ostrovsko plain. Going that way, the detachment fell into a trap.
Hristo was a courier at that time and his brother Tome had the machine
gun. The two brothers were sacrificed during that battle. They fell
but the detachment succeeded in getting through and completing its mission.
