Radmila U. AVDALOVIĆ
RADMILA RADOJKA AVDALOVIĆ, daughter of UROŠ, born on March 15, 1917, in Bjelajac near Mrkonjić Grad. She graduated from the Teacher Training School in Mostar, where she lived with her family. She worked as a teacher in Lipnik near Gacko. She was a pre-war member of the League of Communist Youth (SKOJ) and a member of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ) since 1941. She was killed by the Chetniks* in July 1942 in Riljima near Nevesinje.
*In an article from 1945, it was stated that the Ustaše were responsible for Radojka’s death: “In 1942, Jelena Avdalović lost her daughter Radmila, who worked as a teacher in the village of Lipnik. The Ustaše killed her because her brothers were freedom fighters.”
In the National Liberation War, two of Radmila’s brothers also died: Mladen Avdalović and Boro Avdalović. The newspaper “Borba” published a touching interview with their mother Jelena in 1945 in the section “Naše junačke majke” (Our Heroic Mothers). You can read the article here.
