Holocaust Education Campaign and Bulgaria’s Contribution to Jewish Rescue Started in Burgas Region

Center “Alef” joins the initiative with the presentation of the movie “To Remember” in Chernomorets

The campaign “The Holocaust – Bulgaria’s Contribution to the Rescue of the Jews” has started with a historical talk and a presentation of a documentary move in the town of Chernomorets. The state initiative is within the framework of the Communication Strategy of Bulgaria – priority 2, direction 2: 75 years since the rescue of Bulgarian Jews and in memory of the deported and destroyed nearly 12,000 Jews from Aegean Thrace, Vardar Macedonia and Pirot.

The event, which gathered students and citizens of Chernomorets in the hall of the National Library “Dimo Nikolov-1908”, was attended by the Regional Governor Valcho Cholakov and the Mayor of the city Dobri Dobrev. A special guest was Alberta Alkaly – Chairperson of Center for Jewish-Bulgarian Cooperation “Alef”, who presented her documentary film “To Remember.” The tape is a story about the Jewish community in Burgas during the Holocaust and the prevention of its deportation to the Nazi death camps.

Alberta Alkalay shared how the film was made and why it is necessary to talk about the Holocaust. “Being silent about this horrible time is harmful. We need to have knowledge about it. Because only in this way we can oppose to the manifestations of genocide and hatred in the modern world, “she said.

“You need to know what a devastating role World War II played for humanity, what the Holocaust is and how the Bulgarian people saved their fellow Jews. It is even more important to be good and not to divide others by color or religion and to help those in need. Remember that evil should not be allowed to conquer,”Regional Governor Valcho Cholakov said to the children.

Mayor Dobri Dobrev thanked Center “Alef” for its active work aimed at preserving the memory and involving young people in the cause of a more humane and peaceful world.
