Center for Jewish-Bulgarian cooperation

Center “Alef” launches a museum exposition about the history of the Jewish community in Bulgaria

One of the causes of the Center for Jewish-Bulgarian Cooperation “Alef” in Burgas is to be like a guardian of history memory. After creating the documentary movie about the Jews of Burgas, “To Remember”, the association turned to the idea of creating a mini-museum for the history of the Jewish community in Bulgaria.
We have only read books and we have only watched movies about how the Jews have lived in peace and understanding with their neighbors and fellow citizens but it is quite another thing to be able to see things and documents illustrating their lives – menorah, kippah, shofar… the yellow star that they were obliged to wear during the Holocaust, even a bag, specially sewn to put the things they could take with them during deportation.

A small part is already available, mainly photos, letters and documents, as well as a video that tells about the culture and the way of living of the Jewish people.

Center “Alef” appeals to all Bulgarians and Jews living in Bulgaria who have preserved substantial memories from the history of their families: discover the pieces of memory and give them a second life as part of a museum exposition.

Besides that the exposition will be positioned in a mini-museum, it will also be filmed and arranged in an exhibition that will be able to travel to all over the country. It will be an excellent illustrator for historical talks, especially related to the Holocaust and the Bulgarian Jews rescued by the Nazi camps. This subject is popular not only in Bulgaria, (a few days ago Bulgaria was accepted as a full member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance), but all around the world, where there are attempts anti-Semitism to be revived.

Send or bring your material memories to the office of Center “Alef”. The memories that are on paper will be photographed and returned to you after registration in the log-book of the museum exposition.

It is worth it to look at the old chests – sometimes priceless testimonies of the past can be found in them.
