Krunoslav R. MILIĆEVIĆ
KRUNOSLAV KRUNO MILIĆEVIĆ*, son of RAFO, born in Mostar in 1923, a painter. He became a member of the Communist Youth League (SKOJ) in 1941. He joined the People’s Liberation War (NOV i POJ) in the spring of 1943 in the Mostar Youth Detachment and later in the Mostar Battalion in July 1943. He was captured with Mladen Balorda’s group at Kamena after the detachment left Mostar that same month. It was probably an act of betrayal because on July 4, 1943, a group of 200 German SS soldiers came to Blagaj and asked the Ustasha station to direct them towards Kaluđer Bunar, where the partisans were resting. On July 8, the same police station was informed that “there were dead partisans in the forest” (a wounded partisan named Huso Maslić was found and taken to a hospital where he died). After a few days, “14 captured fighters were taken and executed in Ovojci near Široki Brijeg: MLADEN BALORDA, a worker from Mostar, ŠAĆIR ČELEBIĆ, a worker from Mostar, MUZAFER DERONJA, a worker from Mostar, ALIJA DRAČE, a worker from Mostar, MARTIN DRVLJANOVČAN, a musician from Hrvatsko Zagorje, IBRAHIM ĐUKIĆ, a student from Mostar, OMER ĐUKIĆ, a worker from Mostar. ABDUSELAM ELEZOVlĆ, a worker from Mostar, SMAJO IBRULJ, a student from Mostar, NAFIK KAZAZIĆ, a student from Mostar, MIRKO KONJEVOD, a worker from Mostar, KRUNO MILIĆEVIĆ, a worker from Mostar, OSMAN NOŽIĆ, a worker from Mostar, and ŠERIF SELIMOVIĆ, a student from Mostar”.
