Mustafa M. REPAK
MUSTAFA MUJA REPAK, son of MUHAMED, born on December 16, 1921* in Ljubinje*. He lived and studied in Mostar, working as a carpenter. According to family members, he was an avid photographer and around a hundred of his photos have been saved to this day. He became a member of the League of Communist Youth (SKOJ) in 1940 and joined the Battalion in May 1942. He was a fighter who died during a Chetnik coup in Dramiševo near Nevesinje in June 1942.
EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE on Mustafa’s death during the Chetnik coup:
“A group of locals led by JG attempted to disarm and take six Mostar residents who were in the Žerojica marshes to Dramiševo. There they encountered four fighters: Šefik Vila, a worker from Mostar, Mustafa Repak, a worker from Mostar, Kemal Kadić, a student from Konjic, and Dževad Jusufbegović, a student from Prozor. Joko Glogovac immediately tried to disarm them. The young men resisted, and they were killed in the process.”
