On the second day of his visit to Israel Bulgarian President Rumen Radev participated in a ceremony of the eternal flame’s rekindling at the Yad Vashem memorial in Jerusalem, devoted to the memory of the Holocaust’s victims. Being the country that has saved 50,000 Jews from the death camps, keeping its Jewish community safe, Bulgaria has its place in the museum exposition, displaying images and exhibits, preserved by Holocaust survivors. The president wrote down in the Guest Book that he was proud of the fact that the Bulgarians had succeeded in rescuing their Jews in Europe’s dark period. His gift to the museum exposition was a photo set of 4 Bulgarians, who had helped for the saving of Jews from Macedonia.
