There is a WWII memorial and graves of those who fell, on the hill above Biljana Springs.
To get there, go up the very long stairs next to the petrol station on the roundaboud on Bulevar Turisticka, just before you leave Ohrid on the road to St Naum.
When you reach the end of the stairs, there is a big sign with a map (sponsored by Francophonie) showing a hike from Ohrid to the Monastery of St Petka in Velgosti via the village Ramne. There should also also a sign pointing to the right pointing to the ruins of an Early Christian Basilica (in French: La Basilique Prechretienne V et VI siecle).
If you go to the left here, you will pass the graves and memorial.
The text on the grave says, roughly translated:
The blossom of a youth
Who grew and lived with us
Who was happy and sad with us
Fell for what he was wishing
The freedom of his nation
