Film to tell story of Bulgarian Jews

Wednesday, March 14, 2001

By Bob Batz Jr., Post-Gazette Staff Writer

The national Bulgarian center here is bringing to Pittsburgh one of the first showings of a documentary film on how Bulgaria saved many of its Jews during World War II.

The film, "Beyond Hitler's Grasp: The Heroic Rescue of Bulgaria's Jews," is based on a book by that same title by Michael Bar-Zohar, who last year visited the Bulgarian Macedonian National Educational and Cultural Center in West Homestead.

On Sunday, April 1, the BMNECC, in cooperation with the American University in Bulgaria, will present the film along with its author/producer in the music hall at the Homestead Carnegie Library. Also appearing will be American University President Julia M. Watkins.

The new film has been shown only a couple of times, including to the Bulgarian Parliament and to its UN delegation in New York, says BMNECC President Pat French. "As far as I know, we're the first to show it to the general public.

Tickets for the film and reception are $25, tickets to just see the film are $15 (or $10 for seniors and students). And $15 per ticket is tax deductible.

To order tickets (by March 24, please) or more information, call 412-461-6188.
