Muhamed A. MOMIĆ
MUHAMED MOMIĆ HODŽA, son of AHMET, born in 1885 (according to one source, 1895) in Mostar, a café owner, a pre-war activist of the workers’ movement. He joined the Battalion in September 1941 and was a fighter. He died from typhus in Nevesinje in March 1943.
According to the recollection of comrade Enver Ćemalović:
“I visited our comrades in the Central Hospital in Nevesinje and brought them food – canned goods, rice, and sugar. I brought a bottle of cognac for Muhamed Momić Hodža, the café owner from Mostar. When I offered it to him, he refused, barely speaking: ‘I can’t, my comrade.’ He died a few days later. All the comrades mourned Momić, who was a wonderful old man among us, always concerned about the fate of the fighters and full of paternal advice.”
