TONIGHT: PROGRAM ON THE WHITEWASHING OF HOLOCAUST HISTORY – THE MURDER OF 13,000 SEPHARDIC JEWS LEFT WITH NO VOICE

 

YOU ARE INVITED TO A PROGRAM ON THE WHITEWASHING OF HOLOCAUST HISTORY – THE MURDER OF 13,000 SEPHARDIC JEWS LEFT WITH NO VOICE

HOW BULGARIA USED THE “50,000” JEWS THEY REPEAT THEY SAVED,
TO HELP THEM GET INTO THE EUROPEAN UNION

PRESS CONFERENCE INFORMATION

WHO:
International Committee for Bulgarian Holocaust-Era Truth, in cooperation with the Association of Friends of Greek Jewry, National Association of Jewish Child Holocaust Survivors (NAHOS), Kahal Kedosha Janina, Fondo de Holocausto de los Judíos de Macedonia (The Holocaust Fund of the Jews from Macedonia), The Sephardic Temple and the International Sephardic Leadership Council.

WHAT:
Activists and members of the Jewish community will gather to ll on the government of Bulgaria to halt their continued whitewashing of the truth relating to their interaction with Jews during the era of the Holocaust. This will be at a free public program including lecture and photographs. –WITH A PRE-EVENT PRESS CONFERENCE

WHERE:
The Sephardic Temple (775 Branch Blvd. Cedarhurst (Queens) NY 11516)

WHEN:
March 1, 2011 Press conference at 6pm – Public event 7pm – television/radio/print media welcome (exactly 70 years to-the-day, of the pact uniting Bulgaria with Germany as Axis partners, March 1, 1941)

WHY:

  1. While it is frequently retold that the Bulgarian government elected not to deport some 50,000 Jews from Bulgaria to German death camps in Poland–what is generally not revealed, is that Bulgaria was directly complicit in the murder of some 13,000 other Jews from their own land. –This must be corrected.
  2. Bulgaria suppressed this information to help demonstrate their ?good? record of human rights to get into the European Union ? while at the same time the US State Department demonstrated Bulgaria had many problems relating to its modern human rights record. They continue to suppress this information and the Jewish community?including Holocaust survivors –who demand the truth.

 

Note: On this day, a Special Report will be released to the public demonstrating how the Bulgarian government was complicit in the dispossession, torture and murder of thousands of Jews-and-how the Bulgarian government continues to whitewash this fact. Advance copies are available for the media.

  1. Rachel dice:

    Many Bulgarian Jews I know feel grateful to the Bulgarian government for not deporting them. Yet, it is also true that that government was complicit in the deportation of its annexed territories in Macedonia and Thrace. This issue was discussed in several books, including Vicky Tamir’s “Bulgaria and Her Jews: The History of a Dubious Symbiosis” (Sepher-Hermon Press, 1979), which does not paint a rosy picture.

    It is interesting that the program in Macedonia to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, “Tribute to the 7,148 Jews from Macedonia, murdered in the Treblinka extermination camp in March 1943″ (see http://www.esefarad.com/?p=19105) does not even mention Bulgaria.
