Ribov Blazhe

Blazhe Petrov was born in the village of Bobica, Kostur region.

He had a rebellious spirit; he could not tolerate injustice and it caused him to leave his old mother and father, his fiancé, and join the ranks of DAG. He was a decisive and fearless partisan. In the battle on Grevena his comrades had stepped back because of the pressure of the enemy but not Blazhe. He knew what it would mean to give up that location and so he waged battle alone and heroically struggled against several enemy fighters. In that battle he was killed, meeting his obligation to his people.
