EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE, on Hido’s death:
“In the afternoon, around 4 o’clock, Jovan Glogovac arrives in the village of Kruševljane and tells the story of the killings of many communists and Montenegrins in Dramiševo and Zaborani, as well as the disarming of 12 fighters from Mostar who are held in the basement of his house. He offered to have the commander of the gendarmerie barracks, Ranko Ivančević, send about ten men to take over the prisoners and hand them over to the Italians in Nevesinje. Since the locals rejected this proposal, Jovan returned to Dramiševo. Upon Jovan’s return to the village, a Chetnik council was convened under the leadership of Novica Glogovac, which decided to kill the disarmed fighters. Under the cover of darkness, the Chetniks bring out the prisoners, take them to the outskirts of the village, and execute them: IBRAHIM ALIKALFIĆ DUJA, a worker, MUHAMED HADŽOMEROVIĆ SIPA, a student, OMER KLJAKO, a worker, BRANKO KOSJERINA, a civil servant, MUSTAFA KREŠO, a worker, SALEM SKIKIĆ, a worker, TOMO STIPIĆ, a worker, HIDAJET ŠARIĆ HIDO, a student, and SALKO ŠEHOVIĆ, a gardener.”
