SKOPJE CELEBRATES 64TH ANNIVERSARY OF LIBERATION



National.

The capital of Macedonia is marking today 64th anniversary of its liberation from the Nazi occupation.

On 13 November, 1944, Macedonian partisans drove the troops of Nazi Germany out of Skopje.

After invasion of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and ensuing capitulation in April 1941, Bulgaria occupied the city. Following Bulgaria's capitulation in September 1944, German forces took control over Skopje.

Mayor Trifun Kostovski is scheduled to meet today with representatives of the Association of WWII Veterans and lay flowers at the monuments honoring Skopje's liberators.

The best athletes from Skopje in the previous year will be declared Thursday afternoon, which will be followed by awarding of "13 November" prizes.

The road junction at the Continental Hotel will be put into operation today.
