Isn't that interesting. Makes you wonder about the Jews of Solun, they would have been far better friends to Macedonians than the former Turkish Nationals that stole their land.

According to John Shea's book 'Macedonia and Greece' he writes on page 168;

Quote:
Given the presence of at least one Jewish revolutionary (Julius Rosenberg) amongst prominent Ilinden heroes, it would seem that membership was expanded even further at some point in time.

What an interesting topic, it's nice to have some corroboration behind the suggestion that Jews helped the Macedonians of VMRO.

Default Kruevo / Крушево

Kruevo (Macedonian: Крушево, Aromanian: Crushuva) is a town in the Republic of Macedonia. It is the highest town in Macedonia, situated at an altitude of over 4,000 feet (1250 m) above sea level. The town of Kruevo is the seat of Kruevo municipality.

History

Mentioned in documents from the 15th century, Kruevo is a living museum, famous for its traditional architecture, cultural sites, and legacy as the site of the great 1903 Ilinden uprising against Ottoman domination. The rebellion failed, but its memory is cherished in Macedonia even today, as a symbol of the national struggle for freedom and democracy; while it lasted only 10 days, the Kruevo Republic of revolutionary leader Nikola Karev represented a desire for self-rule under a modern European political system. Today an enormous monument on the hill above Kruevo marks the elusive dream of the Ilinden revolutionaries.

During the Ilinden Uprising in 1903 the rebels proclaimed a short lived Kruevo Republic. Having suppressed the uprising the city was almost completely destroyed by the Ottoman army.The republic known as Kruevska republika was established here in 1903 during the Ilinden insurrection. One of the most important points in the Ilinden uprising was the declaration of the "Manifesto of Kruevo". It called for all the people of Macedonia regardless of their nationality and religion to fight together against the Ottoman Empire and live peacefully in a free country of Macedonia. Most of the heads and soldiers of Ilinden were pure Aromanians/Armans.

There is in the area a monument called Mečkin Kamen (Bear's Stone). This was the place where the Aromanian Pitu Guli and his band (cheta) was trying to defend the town of Kruevo from the Turkish troops coming from Bitola. The whole band and their leader (voivode) perished and Kruevo as well as many of the nearby villages were set to fire by the Ottomans.


Postcard with picture from Krushevo - 1903
Kruevo is a picturesque mountain town. Situated at an altitude of 1,350 metres (4,400 ft), Kruevo is the highest town in the Republic of Macedonia. Kruevo is known for its many fine examples of 19th century domestic architecture. The town is full of old and more recent houses built in the style of old Aromanian architecture. The town was founded by Macedonians in the 15. century. The cultural and economic uprising of the town faced when Aromanians from Epirus in particular from Moscopolis arrived there in the 18. century. Today we have the highest concentration of Aromanians/Armans in Macedonia in Krusevo.

It is home to Mečkin Kamen, an historical landmark which marks the spot of the uprising of 1903. On 2 August every year, it is the site of the traditional Macedonian Independence Day celebrations, which are attended by the President of Macedonia and other Macedonian political leaders.Kruevo also hosts the Makedonium monument to the Ilinden Uprising and a number of museums of the Ilinden Uprising.The towns galleries include an exhibit of 19th century icons and a memorial to the master of modern Aromanian painting Nikola Martinovski who was born in this town.Because of its elevation, Kruevo is one of
Macedonias winter sports destinations; the same quality also makes this pine-forested getaway a comfortable destination in summer, when the Kruevo air stays cooler and more pure than in the arid lowlands.

Krusevo is, in my opinion, the most picturesque town in Macedonia. For those who havent been I definately recommend a visit there. The scenery leading into the town is very nice and the view is great from the top of the town looking down onto the houses and the rest of the area. More could be done however for the people, the architecture and for the protection of the Aromanian language/culture.
