My granpa in partisans by Sickpete My granpa in partisans by Sickpete
Well thats my granpa in Partisans(anti-fascist guerrila army that was in ex-Yugoslavian countries during WWII),he was 16 years old at that time,he was from Mljet but he got shot in parts of Slavonija(northern-eastern part of Croatia) thro both legs.Luckly if the bullets whent just a little bit on other side he would lose both legs but instead he was just crippled and couldnt run anymore becouse of pain after it.After he got injured he was send in Zagreb(still under nazi rule at that time) and was in hospital in Vinogradska street.He befriended with german officer in hospital who told him to scratch his wounds so he wouldnt be forced to fight in Ustasha yought army.In Zagreb he met the end of war.He is still alive has 82 years now,still lives on Mljet with his wife,and he stills gets up in 6 in the morning to work on field which is really astonishing O-o and looks atleast 10 years younger or more ^^.I guess I should go back to village life too haha XD

I really salute this great man who fought against Nazism, the Third Reich with the main enemy of humanity and the Slavs. I hope he rests in peace and glory that his descendants will remember the hero that his tomb is always in color, and that his blood helped to liberate and protect us from scum
