Nationalizing the Holocaust


During World War II, Bulgaria was an ally of Nazi Germany but, resisting German pressure, it decisively postponed the deportation of about 48,000 Bulgarian Jew. However, in the territories under Bulgarian occupation - Vardar Macedonia and the Pirot region in Yugoslavia; and Western Thrace (the eastern part of Aegean Macedonia) in Greece - 11,343 Jews were rounded up and deported to Nazi extermination camps. Only a handful survived. How can we account for what might appear to be an utterly two-faced policy from the Bulgarian regime?
