Persecution of Human Rights Activists and Anti Fascists

Such cases were not recorded during the observed period. However, it is worth noting that the social and medical support of veterans of the antifascist movement is just symbolic in Bulgaria. Many active members of the antifascist resistance, who contributed to the defeat of fascism, currently find themselves in a difficult financial situation.

In 1995, an Act was passed, recognising participants of the antifascist resistance as participants in the Second World War allied with the anti-Hitler coalition, not providing for any financial benefits for antifascists. However, four years later, even this law was cancelled. Later, public representatives from the Bulgarian Socialist Party introduced a bill to the National Assembly, according to which the members of antifascist resistance would receive the deserved moral appreciation, however, this bill never passed as well.
