Jews to Be Expelled from Bulgarian-occupied Territories

Jews will be expelled from Bulgarian-occupied territories, according to a Budapest report published in the “Neue Zuercher Zeitung.”

The report states that under a Bulgarian Government decree regulating the nationality of the inhabitants of Western Thrace and Macedonia, former Greek and Yugoslav nationals of Bulgarian blood automatically acquire Bulgarian nationality. Inhabitants of Serbian, Greek or Turkish blood must leave the country before the end of March, 1943, unless they choose to adopt Bulgarian nationality. The decree contains no special provisions concerning Jews and, according to the “Neue Zuercher Zeitung,” there appears to be no question of their being absorbed into the Bulgarian State.
