Communist literature claims that this is Nikola Kalabić with partisans (disguised as četniks),
day after they captured Gen. Mihailović.
This photo simply isn't clear enough to be sure.
You can make every long-bearded man's face blury
and claim it is Kalabić.
(photo-source: "Album srpskih četnika gen.D.Mihailovića u 1000 slika Vol.1", M.Samardžić)
There are several versions of Kalabić's fate and Draža's capturing,
but none of them can be called final and true.
But - that's another story...

very powerful photos. Do you by any chance know any more about this one
(Iscrpljeni partizani,Sutjeska,11.juna 1943..jpg (32.86 KiB)
who took it? where the original is, if one exists?

Yes, you are right, a little more research on Zorz Skrigin shows this photo was indeed taken by him. Thank you.
I wonder if you can help with another question? Some time ago I came across this quote (on the Forum?) spoken by a Slovene peasant partisan as he faced a German firing squad: 'It is for your sake that I am dying.'
Do you by any chance recognise this? Could you possibly put a name, date, location to it?
I am unsure about this one. On the picture you can see ustasha member with his massacred victim. Should I remove this one?
