Vice President Inaugurates an Exhibition in Bucharest on the Rescue of Bulgarian Jews

Vice President Iliana Iotova inaugurated the exhibition "80 years since the rescue of the Bulgarian Jews" with documents from the collection of the National Library "SS Kiril and Methodius", which is under the patronage of President Rumen Radev. The opening was attended by representatives of the diplomatic corps in Romania, as well as the Jewish community in the country.
 
The exhibition presents the exploits of ordinary Bulgarians, the Bulgarian state, Bulgarian politicians and the Bulgarian Orthodox Church for the rescue of Bulgarian Jews. They all stood in front of the trains and did not allow their friends, neighbours, acquaintances to leave for the death camps. We Bulgarians are the proud heirs of these brave people who chose the side of justice and humanity at the risk of their own lives and the lives of their families, Iotova said in her speech. She stressed that today 20 righteous Bulgarians are recipients of the highest recognition for humanity of the Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Centre in Jerusalem.
 
There is no argument that can justify one of the most evil crimes in the history of mankind - the murder of over 6 million people just because of their ethnicity. Humanity will always carry the shadow of this disgrace. To ensure that the years of the Second World War and the Holocaust are never repeated, this history must be known and today's exhibition is part of that knowledge, the Vice President said. She described attempts to deny the Holocaust as dangerous. Such voices are emerging in radical movements in Europe. Acts of Anti-Semitism still today put their shameful imprint on our societies and lives, Iotova said. The Vice President called for vigilance against all forms of hatred, denial and violence. We must categorically declare: never again hatred, violence, wars, she stressed.

Nor can it revise international treaties, because this 'brands' the country as a state that does not respect international law. This is what Head of State Rumen Radev told the media in Burgas when asked to comment on the once again exacerbated rhetoric in Skopje regarding Bulgaria.
