An exhibition dedicated to the geographical region of Dobruja and the Treaty of Craiova of 1940 was unveiled at the National Assembly building on Wednesday. The exhibition is held at the initiative of MPs representing Dobrudzha Region and is organized in cooperation with the local regional history museum.
The exhibition was unveiled by Denitsa Sacheva MP of GERB-UDF. Under the Treaty of Craiova, Southern Dobruja was returned to Bulgaria. Historians regard it as the second Unification of Bulgaria, she noted. National goals require national unity, she added.
The exhibition features photos showing the Bulgarian delegation's work during the negotiations on the Treaty and its signing on September 7, 1940, as well as the Bulgarian Army's entry in Southern Dobruja between September 21 and October 1, 1940. Captured on camera is the huge joy of the local residents upon the Bulgarian soldiers' arrival in Balchik, Dobrich, Tutrakan, Kavarna, Tervel, Silistra, and General Toshevo as well as the tragedy of nearly 70,000 Bulgarians from Northern Dobruja who the Treaty of Craiova forced to relocate south.
