Bulgaria’s participation in the deportation of Jews from Macedonia

Bulgarian government direct involvement in deportation of Jews from Macedonia in 1943 is a historical fact supported with many documents from Nazi archives proving that Bulgarian authorities in Skopje 1943 were not only aware of deportation, but they organized taking Jews from their homes and transport them to extermination camp Treblinka in the Nazi occupied Poland.
These are three written exchanges between Bulgarian railway authorities in Skopje with Nazi authorities, related to the Jews from Macedonia transportation details and price.
All three documents are dated September and October 1943, clearly pointing that transport destination was Treblinka (first transport on March 23 and second on March 28, caring 3545 adult Jews and 592 children). The price of the transport, evident in these documents, was 7.144.317 “Bulgarian Levs”.
Jewish Community of Macedonia consider these documents as additional arguments regarding the direct involvement of that time Bulgarian occupational authorities in the deportation of the Jews from Macedonia, expecting the current Bulgarian government, instead denial of WWII active role of Bulgarian authorities in the holocaust, finally to ask apologize from the shadows of the holocaust victims from Macedonia, on behalf of the Bulgarian state.
Bulgaria recently furiously reacted on the movie “The Third Half”, denying any Bulgarian connection with the holocaust of the Jews from Macedonia, even there no reaction yet on the book printed in Greece about deportation of the Jews from there and the role of that time Bulgarian occupational authorities in those event.
