Mladen G. VUKOVIĆ
MLADEN VUKOVIĆ, son of GOJKO, born on June 30, 1917, in Mostar, the eldest son of the renowned revolutionaries Gojko and Zlatka Vuković, pre-war activist. He worked as a civil servant in Zenica (according to another source, in Sarajevo) and was a member of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ) and the City Committee of the Communist Youth League of Yugoslavia (SKOJ) in Zenica. He joined the Romanija detachment in July 1941.
On August 1, 1941, his mother Zlatka and younger brother Slobodan were executed. Mladen was killed in an attack on the gendarmerie station in Sokolac near Sarajevo shortly thereafter, on August 26, 1941.
Excerpt: “Upon hearing about the death of his closest family members, the other son of Zlatka, who was already with the partisans at that time, began behaving somewhat recklessly and often headlong charging at the enemy, engaging in the fiercest clashes. Soon, he too was killed, struck by enemy fire.”
