THE PLACE AND ROLE OF SLAVEJKO ARSOV IN THE MACEDONIAN REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE
Many great names have been incorporated in the ranks of the Macedonian National Liberation Struggle. Those revolutionary icons were imprinted in the collective memory of the Macedonians and remain vital in their conciseness as symbols of the sacrifice for the fatherland, and the fighting for its freedom with the very last breath, soul, heart and spirit. Slavejko Arsov from Stip, was one of the representatives of the Macedonian revolutionary movement. He left us with numerous great historical documents, dedicated to the revolutionary struggle and related to the national and social freedom of the Macedonians. Yet, very little has been written by Macedonian historians about this great revolutionary, teacher and “vojvoda”. This paper represents a new initiative to explore further this overlooked, while unique, protagonist of the Macedonian struggle in the region of Stip and his immense merits, efforts and revolutionary work.
