Bulgarian Deportation of Jews from Kavala, Greece


This list was taken from a translation from the original text on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the deportation of Bulgarian Jews from Kavala, Greece.

“List of Jewish men taken from Kavala for forced labor in Bulgaria and then, sent to their deaths at Treblinka.  Any claim that the Bulgarian government had that they protected these men from deportation is a lie. Any claim that the Bulgarian government gives that they are not responsible for the deaths of Jews in the Bulgarian Zones of Occupation is an example of hypocrisy and cruelty. In memory of the members of the Rousso family: Menachem, Elia, Natan, Haim and Isaak. They watched their families pass by in the cattle cars on the way to their deaths in Treblinka, only to be placed in cattle cars themselves to join them shortly afterwards. May their memory be eternal. We will never forget.”
