The Jewish National Fund removed mention of Bulgaria’s wartime king from a monument commemorating the destruction of Balkan Jewry during the Holocaust. According to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, the decision to change the monument, which is located in Bulgaria, stems from the fact that while King Boris protected the Jews of his own country, he helped the Nazis murder Jews in areas of Greece and Yugoslavia annexed to Bulgaria.
