President Radev: Bulgaria Did Not Allow Even a Single Bulgarian Jew to be Sent to the Death Camps
January 23 (BTA) - Bulgarian President Rumen
Radev Thursday attended a memorial ceremony at the Yad Vashem
Holocaust museum in Israel, marking the 75th anniversary of the
liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland during
World War II and International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Over
40 heads of state and government took part of the event in
"The Fifth International Holocaust Remembrance Forum brings
together leaders from around the world to remind us of one of
the darkest and most shameful periods in human history and to
warn us never to allow this to happen again," said Radev before
"Bulgaria is attending with its head held high, as it did not
allow even a single Bulgarian Jew to be sent to the death camps,
and we can only be proud of this feat of the Bulgarian people,"
the President pointed out. He called for joint efforts to
combat anti-Semitism, xenophobia and hate.
In Tel Aviv, Radev will meet with representatives of the
Bulgarian community and will attend the premiere screening of
the Israeli-Bulgarian documentary "Next Generation" by Bulgarian
director Dimitar Gochev.
