EXCERPT FROM LITERATURE:
“The house and its location were an ideal gathering place for the underground members. Isolated, without neighbors, on one side it bordered the park and the Tax Administration building – Slavko Prstojević’s father was the caretaker there, and Slavko, his son, along with Brano Kovačević, Ibro, and Dževad Vrgora, Todor Skiba, and several other SKOJ members deployed around the house, formed the armed security for the gathering.”
