Georgie Georgiadis was born in the village Shtrkovo, Lerin region.
At the time of the Nazi occupation, he worked in EPON. In 1947 he became
a partisan in the ranks of DAG. He participated in many battles and
because of his strength and bravery he was sent to officer school in
the headquarters of DAG, where he was an exemplary student-fighter.
In the battles in Vich in 1949 he fell, killed.
Georgi's father, bai-Traiko, also fell in the battle for freedom of
their motherland. He had fought during Ilinden; he was an Ilindenec,
and despite his older age, he undertook a number of different services
for DAG. Along with the others from Prespa, he dug the trenches in Bela-Voda,
Bigla Lunzer and elsewhere. He said "We will dig trenches so that our
children can defend themselves and so that our children are better able
to fight." And there, where he was working - in Bigla - an enemy grenade
found him and he was killed. When Georgi learned of his father's death,
threw himself into battle against fascism with even greater passion.
