 The cabinet has proclaimed February 1 Day of tribute to the victims of the Communist regime at the initiative of former Presidents Jelyu Jelev (1990-1997) and Petar Stoyanov (1997-2002). On this day, 1945 regents MPs, high officers, cabinet ministers and public figures found their death after the decision of the so-called People’s Tribunal. The event is emblematic for ban history as it gave the start of blood-thirsty repressions against the Bulgarian people. “The Day of National Memory will commemorate the victims but would also help acquire a better understanding of events from our recent past. Without this knowledge we would not be able to go forward as a free democratic and dignified European state”, reads the letter extended to Prime Minister Boyko Borissov, proclaiming February 1 Day of Tribute to the victims of the Communist Regime.
