Jewish Community in Bulgaria Publishes Yearbook with Much Data

The Cultural and Educational As Faith of Jews in Bulgaria has published a yearbook, a large volume containing considerable material on Bulgarian Jewry, in addition to the usual calendar material.

Entitled “Godishnik,” the yearbook carries an introduction written by Dr. Yossef Ostrukov, the association chairman. The preface was prepared by Prof. Jacques Nathan, a Jewish member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

Essays in the yearbook deal with the history of Bulgarian Jews, Jewish economics in the Balkans in the 16th and 17th centuries, the face of Bulgarian Jews during World War II, and statements about Jews by Bulgarian statesmen.

Summaries in English, French and Spanish are included with an explanation that Bulgarian is not known to readers outside of Bulgaria.
