Georgi Samara was born in 1915 in the village of Katranica to a poor
farming family. He went to high school for two years and because of
poverty he could not complete his schooling.
In 1942 he became a member of the CPG and joined the ranks of ELAS.
He took part in many battles against the occupier and became a captain.
After the Varkiza agreement, the monarcho-fascist forces followed
him and, as a result, he lived in the mountains. There, together with
Vangel Charka and others, he made charcoal. He was among the first to
join DAG after its formation and fought bravely. He was killed in the
month of May in the battle on Ckra. Georgi Samara was a courageous fighter
and a capable commander. A loyal soldier of the Party.
