Several mentions of Enver Lakišić are recorded in the literature:
“(…) we continued to climb up Boračka Draga. I remember that down the mountain (…) Enver Lakišić, our doctor, and Esa Grebo came running to us. The Chetniks had disarmed them in Borci, in the village itself, and let them go. They didn’t harm them, they just took their weapons away (…)”
Enver Ćemalović: “Before nightfall, Hamid Drljević and the wounded Enver Lakišić joined them. When night fell, with the moonlight shining as if it were day, they crossed the Sutjeska River. Hamid carried Enver across the water. They stayed under the Vučevo rocks for three nights and three days. On June 14, the Germans massacred anyone they caught at Tjentište, including our horses, and on June 16, they left Tjentište and marched in long columns towards Gacko (…)”
