He was born in 1920 in the town of Lerin to a poor farming family.
His father - Kire Pejov, was an old Macedonian revolutionary and he
raised his children in that spirit.
During the Nazi occupation Georgi and his sister were organized into
the CPG and actively helped the national liberation movement on the
side. After liberation, they again worked actively for the people in
Lerin. Georgi's sister was a member of the people's court in the mid
region of the town.
After the Varkiza agreement the two brothers were followed by the reactionary
forces because of their dedication to the Party and the people's struggle.
Georgi's sister was arrested and after two years in jail in Edi-Kule
and elsewhere, she was executed.
Georgi did not fall into the hands of the enemy. He operated illegally
in the ranks of the CPG and in other patriotic organizations of the
people. Despite his age and his great sorrow at the loss of his daughter,
his father did not worry. Georgi worked in the people's struggle motivated
by an inextinguishable hatred for the persecutors of the people and
optimism in an eventual victory. Unlawful gatherings were arranged in
his home and he covered for the outlawed activity with permitted operations.
One night they had gone to Georgi's home with the secretary of the
town committee of the CPG. Before they set off Georgi told his parents
that he would go away to work and might not return home for a long time.
Kire hugged him and said "Go in good health, my son! Make sure that
you do not let the enemy capture you alive and do not embarrass me.
I do not want you to come home at all if you are hanging your head in
So Georgi set off. He joined the ranks of DAG and as a unit commander
commissar he fought heroically. In one particularly intense battle near
the village of Kleshtima-Lerinsko he fell on 25 October 1947. In recognition
of his efforts he was promoted to captain, posthumous hero.
Georgi fulfilled the wish of his old father and did not let himself
be captured alive by the enemy. He was an exemplary fighter in the outlawed
operations, fearless in battle with his gun in his hand. He will live
in the memory of all of his comrades.
