Commemorative Campaign "75 Years: The Unforgotten Faces of Salvation"


A commemorative campaign “75 Years: The Unforgotten Faces of Salvation” honours the memory of Bulgarian religious leaders, politicians, diplomats, public figures, intellectuals, academics, and ordinary Bulgarians who chose to challenge the oppression and deportation of their Jewish compatriots during the Second World War. The campaign will be launched and will present the Shalom Sign of Honour to Bulgarian lawyers and writers associations. The commemorative campaign will culminate with the publishing of an encyclopedic book showing for the first time the unique stories and personal pictures of the rescuers. The official presentation of the book will be on March 9 at the Bulgarian Parliament under the auspices of the Parliament Speaker Mrs. Tsveta Karayancheva.
