MITHAD ĆIŠIĆ, son of HUSEIN HUSAGA, born on December 16, 1924, in Mostar. Gymnasium student, member of the League of Communist Youth (SKOJ) in 1941. Joined the National Liberation Army and Partisan Detachments in January 1943 in the Mostar Battalion, fighter of the 3rd Battalion, killed in Sutjeska in June 1943. Mithad’s father is Husaga Ćišić, a pre-war politician and critic of Austro-Hungarian authorities (for which he served time in prison), and later an anti-fascist. In October 1941, he initiated and signed the Resolution of the citizens of Mostar, unanimously condemning the persecutions, property confiscation, systematic killings, and deportations of Serbian and Jewish population to numerous death camps. He is also known for demanding the addition of a sixth flame representing the Bosniaks to the Yugoslav coat of arms.
Mithad is the brother of the fallen fighter Husref Ćišić. A street in Mostar bears the name of the Ćišić brothers.
