Biography[edit]

Mara Naceva was born on September 28, 1920, in Kumanovo. In 1936, at age sixteen, Mara became a member of the Young Communist League of Yugoslavia, and in 1939 a member of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia. Because of her participation in the strike movement, she had to leave Kumanovo and go to Niš, where she also joined the party activities of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia. In 1940, Naceva became a member of the Local Committee and the District Committee of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia for Niš and participated as a delegate from Serbia, in the fifth ground conference of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia held in Zagreb.

Since late 1941, Naceva was a member of the Regional Committee of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia for Macedonia. In summer 1942, she was arrested by the Bulgarian police and was sent to the camp for women near Asenovgrad. A newly discovered letter by Strašo Pindžur sent to his family member, the reporter Blazo Vidov, who at the time worked and lived in Sofia, revealed that Strašo Pindžur tried to find ways to release his friend Mara Naceva from prison.[1]

In March 1943, in her absence, she was elected organizational secretary of the newly formed Communist Party of Macedonia. Also Naceva was elected delegate of the Anti-Fascist Council for the National Liberation of Yugoslavia and of the Anti-fascist Assembly for the National Liberation of Macedonia.[2]

After the Second World War, Naceva was part of many important political functions.
