Bulgarians and Jews over the centuries
Българи и евреи през вековете
The author explores the traditional historical ties between Jews and Bulgarians — from the earliest settlements of Jews on the territory of today's Bulgaria tо their relations within the medieval and modern Bulgarian state; their participation in the Bulgarian liberation movement and in the wars for national unification; the active role of Bulgarian Jews before the international community in defense of national interests, when Bulgaria twice — after the First and Second World Wars — has to wait for the decision of the Great Powers in concluding peace treaties in Paris.
The edition includes information about the rich Jewish cultural and historical heritage preserved in Bulgaria: synagogues, architectural monuments, memorials, museum collections, old printed books etc. The achievements of a number of Bulgarian Jews with significant contribution to Bulgarian culture, literature and painting are presented (Elias Canetti, Valeri Petrov, Solomon Rosanes, Victor Baruch, Dora Gabe, Jules Pasquin, Sultana Suruzhon etc.) .
