Bulgaria Kavala 1943

In early March 2023 commemoration events took place in cities across north-eastern Greece to honour the 80th anniversary of the arrest and deportation of the region’s Jewish communities by the Bulgarian occupation forces in 1943.

For the first time, Greek dignitaries, foreign diplomats and local Jewish organisations were joined in the city of Kavala by a few dozen visitors from Bulgaria, who came to remember the victims of  the Bulgarian government in March 1943.
