Shijaka Shuli was born in the village of Rosilovo, Voden region. During
the Nazi occupation Shuli was a teacher in the village of Katranica-Kajlarsko.
She became one of the most active local cadres of the CPG and, along
with another woman fighter, carried out organizing work among the women
of the village.
During the bloody days of Katranica in 1944 the Germans arrested her
and along with other patriots - Greeks and Macedonians - they forced
her to Trapishta. Once there, they were told to dig their own graves.
But Shuli did not accept that. She told the others to escape and they
did so immediately. But they did not save themselves. The Germans chased
them among the fields and shot and killed them all.
