Enver S. ČUČAK
ENVER ČUČAK, son of SINAN, born on March 18, 1921, in Mostar, a carpenter, a member of the League of Communist Youth (SKOJ) since 1939 and KPJ since 1941, joined the Battalion in November 1941, a fighter. During the Chetnik coup, he was sent back from Crno Polje due to exhaustion, captured by NDH forces in June 1942 in Bijelo Polje near Mostar, and killed.
Enver was part of the third group of fighters who, by the decision of the Battalion Headquarters, had to return to Mostar in 1942. “After a night-long march through Prenj, the group descended to Bijela near Drežnica. During the march, Orhan Mujić fell behind but managed to slip into Mostar and avoid capture. However, the group encountered a patrol of armed guards who apprehended them and took them to Mostar, to the police prison, where they stayed for 7 days before being handed over to the Italians and taken to the Northern Camp.”
The other captured fighters were transported to Mamula camp, from where they were later transferred to Italy, to the Visco di Udine camp.
