Join us in welcoming Ambassador Georgi Velikov Panayotov to The Graduate Center for his discussion on how the Bulgarians rescued ALL of the 48,000 Jews living in Bulgaria (Although Bulgaria allowed the Germans to deport about 11,000 Jews in Bulgarian occupied Macedonia and part of Rumania.) In WWII only Bulgaria and Albania ended the war with more Jews than before the war. Ambassador Georgi Velikov Panayotov will speak about the Rescue and what it is like to be a UN ambassador here in New York.
Lifelong Peer Learning Program member Bill Siegel is a diplomatic outreach team leader for the American Jewish Committee and has arranged this talk.
