was complicit in the dispossession, torture and murder of thousands
of Jews--yet, the Bulgarian government continues to whitewash
this fact. While it is known that the Bulgarian government elected
not to deport some 50,000 Jews from 'Old' Bulgaria to German
death camps in Poland--what is not known is that Bulgaria was
directly complicit in the murder of some 13,000 Jews from 'New'
Bulgaria (their WWII lands of Thrace and Macedonia). Tediously
researched and assembled by Shelomo Alfassa from a multitude
of sources, Shameful Behavior: Bulgaria and the Holocaust
demonstrates what Bulgaria doesn't like to discuss--how they
were responsible for the deaths of Jews during World War II.
exposes how "the Bulgarian government hid its full role
Holocaust in part to gain entry into the European Union in 2007."
Times of Israel
helped kill 13,000 Jews, then, they elected not to kill 50,000
other Jews--by not sending a
loaded train to Treblinka. Yet today, Bulgaria conveniently
forget the 13,000 Jews--as their propaganda
machine continues to work, frequently mentioning that they were
the most humanitarian country
during the Holocaust because they "saved 50,000" Jews.
It's pure and utter shameful behavior."
