Shijaka Shuli

Shijaka Shuli was born in the village of Rosilovo, Voden region. During the Nazi occupation Shuli was a teacher in the village of Katranica-Kajlarsko. She became one of the most active local cadres of the CPG and, along with another woman fighter, carried out organizing work among the women of the village.

During the bloody days of Katranica in 1944 the Germans arrested her and along with other patriots - Greeks and Macedonians - they forced her to Trapishta. Once there, they were told to dig their own graves. But Shuli did not accept that. She told the others to escape and they did so immediately. But they did not save themselves. The Germans chased them among the fields and shot and killed them all.
