    1. Due to the general absence of anti- Semitism in Bulgaria,the Jews of Bulgaria were spared the terrible fate of so many other Jews in the regionalthough the Bulgarian King Allied with the German and thought that the German Aid was needed to reclaim bulgarian lost territories to Greece and Romania they [the Bulgarian Goverment and Facists in the Goverament] refused to hand Jews to the Nazis.Michael Bar-Zohar writes in this book that the :- "the Bulgarian Jews became the only Jewish community in th [...]


    2. Bar-Zohar tells the history of how Bulgarian Jews were saved, detailing the principle events and characters, based on first hand testimony and archival research. For the most part the book provides a fascinating account of anti-Semitism and its resistance in Bulgaria. However, there are bits of the narrative that are contradictory, which somewhat undermines confidence in the story being told. For example, it is argued that before the war Jews had full equality, and yet they could not enter polit [...]



    3. Having met a Bulgarian Holocaust survivor, I was compelled to learn more about this chapter in the story of the war. The story is pretty incredible, since the king, church, and members of the Bulgarian fascist party opposed deportation of Jewish citizens. Of course, they did deport from occupied territoriesThe book reads something like a memoir and a pep rally, but there are a few good criticisms of the various personalities and parties. Not terribly academic, but kind of uplifting. The author's [...]


    4. A well researched book about a little known piece of Holocaust history. During the war Bulgaria was an ally of Germany, yet not one Bulgarian Jew (over 50,000) was sent to a concentration camp. With the help of the citizens, the leaders of the Bulgarian church & the king, the Jews of Bulgaria survived. It's a gripping tale with many unknown heroes who fought for humanity.


    5. I learned more about what different countries did for or against the Jews. I did not know anything about King Boris, or how they saved a whole nation of Jews. I was amazed that Germany did not push the issue, and all the cat and mouse games played that helped them win. It was sad that they did not stand up for the Thracian or Macedonian Jews, yet actually occupied the country for Germany.


    6. If you have ever watched World at War or Schindlers List and felt a great sadness and sorrow then this book will move you too.It is a story of heroism and opposition to the will of Nazi Germany - a story that I am ashamed to admit that I was ignorant of before this book.




    7. A good historical summary of the politics of Bulgaria, specifically involving the Jews, in 1942-44. I never knew any of this, and what good people the Bulgarians (were) are.


    8. Great book about the little known efforts of Bulgarians to save most of the Jewish borthers and sisters from the concentration camps. A must read.
