History/Provenance

The idea to commemorate the salvation of Bulgarian Jews through two identical monuments, in Sofia and Tel Aviv, appeared in connection to the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the salvation in 2013. The Bulgarian government allocated 150,000 Levs to mark the anniversary, including the construction of two monuments.

The monument is Sofia was unveiled on July 7, 2016, during the visit of Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. The monument in Tel Aviv was unveiled on September 5, 2018, during the visit of Bulgarian Prime Minister Boiko Borisov. The Star of David in the Tel Aviv version is made smaller, according to the recommendation of the Tel Aviv Commission on Monuments.

The monument is installed in Jaffa, where a large community of Bulgarian Jews settled in the 1950s.
