Beco Filipovic – The XX Century Man
In 2009 Bosnia and Herzegovina was left without one unknown man who was treated in a cruel by life – Beco Filipovic. Beco, who was 86 years old when he died, survived three concentration camps: Mathauzen(World War Two); Goli Otok(Tito’s Yugoslavia) and Ušće near Doboj(Bosnain Serb concentration camp during the Bosnian Genocide).
Luckily, a documentary film has been made commemorating Beco. It is directed by Haris Prolić and has a superb title: The XX Century Man.
Rest In Peace
Bećo Filipović(18. 12.1923. – 2. 2. 2009.)
