In the United States, Bulgarian Jews who survived Nazi death camps during World War II are tracked down and their memories recorded.
As part of a project carried out at the University of California (UCLA), the subject was the Jews that Bulgaria prevented from being sent to Nazi camps.
According to news from the Bulgarian BTA, the project is being led by Professor Todd Pressner of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Noting that the church, army and society played a role in preventing thousands of Bulgarian Jews from being sent to Nazi camps in 1943, Presner stated that Bulgaria was the only European country that had the courage to save its Jewish citizens by preventing the deportation of nearly 50,000 Jewish citizens to Nazi camps.
Presner, the project is being run with 60 UCLA students.
