Bulgarian MPs ‘Regret’ Holocaust Deportations

| |

Bulgaria’s parliament has, for the first time, expressed regret for the deportation of 11,000 Jews to their deaths during the Holocaust.

The resolution, published on Friday by Bulgaria’s parliament, was issued ahead of the 70th anniversary of the start of deportations from areas controlled by Bulgaria, an ally of Nazi Germany during World War II.

The text of the resolution reads: “Beyond dispute, 11,343 Jews were deported from northern Greece and the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. We denounce this criminal act, undertaken by Hitler’s command, and express our regret for the fact that the local Bulgarian administration had not been in a position to stop this act.”
