Created on : October 28, 2021I did a photoshoot with the amazing Elena Hmeleva in Paris in October 2021 because I needed some updated professional author photos, and these are some of the results. I was quite uncomfortable at first, but she was a pro and got me to relax and enjoy myself. I especially love how Elena managed to evoke the spirit of Paris in so many of the images.

These pages come from the 1972 book by the historian Frederick B. Chary, The Bulgarian Jews and the Final Solution, 1940-1944, published by Pittsburgh University Press.
Chary worked in the Bulgarian archives, and translated several key documents which he included as appendices to his book. Of particular note are the warrants for the deportation of the Jewish populations from the Bulgarian-occupied territories in Macedonia and Greece, signed by the then Minister of Interior, Petar Gabrovski. These are included in Appendix III.
