Monument 11th October - Strumica
The day of the National Uprising of the Macedonian people, 11 October (1941) is an important landmark in the struggle for its sovereignty and independence. The uprising was raised against fascism, which started the struggle for liberation of the Macedonian people. On this day, Macedonians pay respect to all the participants in the armed anti-fascist and national liberation uprising. It is our duty as citizens to guard that something, which the soldiers gave their lives for.
