Georgi Atsev, known as Goga, was a Bulgarian revolutionary, a worker of the IMARO in the Prilep region [1].


The revolutionary band of Georgi Atsev.

Georgi Atsev was born in 1884 in the village of Oreovets, then part of the Ottoman Empire. He worked as a teacher in the Tikvesh region. He joined the IMARO after the Ilinden-Preobrazhenie Uprising, in which his brothers Mirche and Petar took part as voyvodas. At the beginning, during the winter of 1904, he was a freedom fighter in his brother Peter’s revolutionary band, and later in 1905 he became a leader of his own revolutionary band. Atsev had a number of battles against Turkish soldiers and bands of the Serbian and Greek propaganda in Macedonia.

In September 1905, in the village of Polog, he defeated a Greek andart band composed of 10 members from Crete and 15 militia men from the local grecoman villages [2].

In the summer of 1906, he was betrayed, when he performed an act of revenge in the village of Krapa, and his band was attacked by the serboman band of Grigor Sokolov – Lyame. He got injured in a skirmish with Serbian bands as a result of which he killed himself in order not to be captured alive.
