Muhamed H. VUČIJAKOVIĆ
MUHAMED (HASAN) VUČIJAKOVIĆ, son of HAFIZ*, born on May 12, 1905, in Mostar. Landowner and activist. It is remembered that he actively supported the resistance (in the literature it is mentioned that the partisan Marijan Pavelić hid in his house). He was arrested with his son Eman Vučijaković by the Ustasha on February 12, 1945, and taken to Sarajevo. He was killed in Sarajevo as part of the Ustasha retaliation during their retreat from Sarajevo on March 28, 1945.
After a failed assassination attempt on the notorious ustasha commander Maks Luburić in early March 1945, Luburić took control of the judiciary in Sarajevo and formed his own Special Court. This so-called Special Court, through the judgments No. 1/45 and UKP No. 2/45, published in the last issue of the Ustasha “Novi list” on April 3, 1945, sentenced dozens of people to death. In the early morning of March 28, 1945, seven days before the liberation of the city, the Ustasha publicly hanged 56 individuals at Marindvor, and additional bodies were found in the so-called Luburić villa, some of which could not be identified due to the mutilation of the remains. The name of Muhamed Vučijaković was listed as number 2 in the proclamation of the death sentence by firing squad. Muhamed’s son, Eman, was also killed.
*On the proclamation by Luburić, the father’s name is listed as Hamid.
